The UK’s Brain Tumor Research seeks to build the UK’s largest network of experts I sustainable brain tumor research in the quest to find a cure for this insidious class of disease. The organization showcases recent brain tumor research.
Brain tumors are indiscriminate: they can affect anyone at any age. They can strike when no one expects—killing more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Yet historically, only 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
The UK’s only national charity dedicated to funding continuous and sustainable research into brain tumors, their vision to find a cure for brain tumors feeds their mission to build a network of experts to propel tumor research forward. Their aims include:
- Support the development of the next generation of researchers focusing on all types of brain tumors
- Accelerate the progress of brain tumor research within the UK to make a difference through the funding of their dedicated Brain Tumor Research Centers
- Funding a network of Centers, each granted £1 million per year from the organization and partners
- Increase awareness of the lack of funding for brain tumor research to simulate more significant investment by national UK government and larger cancer charities
·Improve clinical outcomes for brain tumor patients
