On 6 March 2018, we held our very first Ask the Researcher: Panel Edition event, where 150 people gathered to hear internationally-renowned researchers talking about a variety of issues connected to brain tumours.
The audience included those personally affected by a brain tumour, students, medical professionals, and researchers, who were able to quiz the panel, which included members of our
Scientific Advisory Board.
Topics discussed included the role of genetics, the efficacy of immunotherapy and the management of symptoms, and the evening was hosted by broadcaster Alastair Stewart, a long-standing friend and passionate supporter of The Charity.

Professor Martin van den Bent serves as Head of the Neuro-Oncology Unit of the Daniel den Hoed Cancer Centre at Erasmus University Hospital, The Netherlands. He is a neurologist, specialising in neurological complications of cancer and in
primary brain tumours.
In this talk, Professor van den Bent shed light on the role of DNA in brain tumours, emphasising the variety within brain tumours.
To help people understand the influence of the work we fund, we've produced a report that shows the progress we're making to improve the quality of life and survival rates of people with a brain tumour.
