The Brain Tumour Charity is looking to recruit a patient, a carer, a parent and a young adult for its Scientific Advisory Board. As lay members on the board, you will have the opportunity to use your personal experience of the disease to assess research grant applications.
We are at the forefront of the battle to find a cure for brain tumours and to eliminate the effect that a brain tumour diagnosis can have on the quality of life of children and adults. As a funding body for brain tumour research, our aim is not just to fund the most promising scientific research possible but to make sure that what we fund is patient-friendly and aligned with our community's needs.
We are currently looking for a patient, carer, parent and young adult to join our Scientific Advisory Board and be the voice of brain tumour patients throughout the assessment of grant applications.

The deadline for applications is Friday 22 July.
Phone interviews for successful applicants will take place on the 3 and 4 of August.
