It campaigns for change in national spend for research and funds the UK’s largest collaboration of laboratory-based brain tumour scientists.

  • Mission statement

    Brain Tumour Research: Our vision is to find a cure for brain tumours.

    Our mission is to build a network of experts in sustainable brain tumour research.

    Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... Yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.

    This is unacceptable!

    We are striving to fund a network of seven dedicated research centres whilst challenging the government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research.

    Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
