Ependymoma research

Ependymoma is one of the most common high grade brain tumour in children. According to the World Health Organisation, ependymomas can be catagorised as Grade 1, 2 or 3 depending on the individual tumour characteristics. 

In around 40% of cases, the current treatment options offer no cure for patients and the long term survival from this tumour remains poor.
