Our successful Ask the Researcher event will give you the chance to hear more about how we’re moving closer to a cure
Join our community on 26 February at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London, as we bring you a great opportunity to hear from some of the world’s leading researchers in the fight against brain tumours.
You’ll learn more about the Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission, and the newly announced adaptive platform trial for glioma – the Tessa Jowell BRAIN-MATRIX. And you’ll hear how researchers are improving the way we measure quality of life in clinical trials.
You’ll then be given the chance to put your questions to the panel, led by Professor Richard Gilbertson, Chair of our Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) and renowned researcher.
Also on the panel will be SAB members and respected experts in the field of brain tumours, Professor Colin Watts and Doctor Susan Chang.
“It was so uplifting to be at the very first Ask the Researcher event hearing the developments for our future care,” said Jordan, one of our Young Ambassadors.
“No questions go unanswered and you will find a real sense of belonging at the event and meeting people in similar circumstances.
“I know personally that The Charity will have been working their upmost to give patients even more options and chances to defeat this terrible disease.”
We currently fund over 222 forward-thinking researchers across 58 different research projects.
Each of the scientists joining us are members of our scientific advisory board, who provide their guidance and expertise to ensure we only fund the very best research out there.
So Ask the Researcher is the perfect event to learn more about research, put your questions to the experts and discover the exciting new progress being made to defeat brain tumours fast.
“I’d definitely recommend to anyone who’s fighting or been affected by a brain tumour to go,” said Jordan.
