Research Work Placements

Are you aged 16-17, in full-time education and would like to gain experience working in a laboratory focusing on research into brain tumours?

In 2015, we launched our research strategy – A Cure Can't Wait– in which we committed to improving outcomes for everyone diagnosed with a brain tumour, including improving survival rates and the quality of life of everyone affected.

We know the only way to do this is by funding only the very best, world-class research to help us reach our goal – to double the survival and halve the harm that brain tumours have. However, there is a need to develop the workforce and support the future leaders of scientific research in the brain tumour field.

It's really important to motivate young people because we need the next generation of researchers to find a cure to treat brain tumours
