Opportunities for researchers

Our vision is a world where brain tumours are defeated. We fund pioneering research to find new treatments, improve understanding, increase survival and bring us closer to a cure. As brain tumour researchers you are central to our community’s drive for a cure for brain tumours.

We are the leading funder of brain tumour research in the UK, having spent over £35.6 million to date on pioneering research. Our research strategy, ‘Accelerating a Cure’, outlines the research areas that we will be funding over five years in order to achieve our goals of doubling survival and halving the harm caused by a brain tumour. Find out more about the latest funding opportunities, the process by which we select which proposals to fund and ways in which you can work with us.
