Professor Richard Gilbertson
Developing transformative therapies for rare childhood brain tumours
Choroid plexus carcinoma's occur most often in one year olds. They are a high grade (grade 3), fast growing tumour.
Here are the research projects we are currently funding that relate to understanding or treating Choroid plexus carcinoma.
This grant is for a large programme of work into two different rare childhood brain tumours. Professor Gilbertson will focus on three main areas of work: making better models to use in the lab, discovering and testing new drugs, and trialling the best way to deliver new drugs to tumours.
