‘The word ‘legacy’ is often overused, but not about the late Baroness Tessa Jowell’. Michelle Mitchell reflects on Cancer Research UK’s new brain tumour funding.
Meet our three new international teams of scientists that have been awarded £18 million to revolutionise brain tumour research.
Our Grand Challenge scientists at the National Physical Laboratory are using their expertise in measurement to draw a new map of cancer. The team hopes it will point to ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
Our scientists have shown it’s possible to detect brain tumour DNA in the liquid surrounding the brain using a cheap technique.
We look at why researchers are working towards brain tumour treatments that are not only more effective, but also kinder.
We’re launching a new Children’s Brain Tumour Centre of Excellence to speed up the discovery of new treatments for children with brain tumours.
Our researchers are working on a new way to improve chemotherapy treatment for aggressive brain tumours, using the precious metal palladium.
