Our Research

We are committed to funding world-class research into brain tumours, from the earliest laboratory studies to clinical trials. We have invested £12 million to date into research that we believe will have a real impact on the brain tumour community. With your support, we can continue to strive for the day when brain tumours are defeated.

We are determined to increase survival and reduce the effect that brain tumours have on quality of life. To achieve this, we will fund research that helps us to understand how and why brain tumours form and identify new targets for drugs. We are determined to get new treatments to patients faster so will fund clinical trials and novel methods of drug development to make this happen. We will reduce the time taken to diagnose brain tumours in children and adults and will invest in new technologies that will aid the early and accurate diagnosis and monitoring of tumours.
