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 £18.3 million to date on pioneering research. Our new research strategy, 'A Cure Can't Wait', outlines the research areas that we will be funding over the next 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.
