Funding Opportunities

The Brain Tumour Charity funding opportunities are based on the key aims of our research strategy 'A Cure Can't Wait' as we aim to double survival and halve the harm caused by brain tumours.

We fund research into a wide variety of brain tumour types that affect both adults and children. We issue open calls for applications for project grants, programme grants, clinical research training fellowships and clinical trials.
