We are excited to be funding some of the leading brain tumour researchers in the UK. Find out more about them, their work and their motivation in our interviews below.
The field of brain tumour research is greatly varied, with over 130 different tumour types in existence, therefore we fund researchers who each have different expertise. Our researchers are investigating how changes to our genes are linked to tumour development, how our immune system can be primed to attack tumour cells and how drugs can be developed which target the tumour cells only, among many other areas of research.
