National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Medical research showcased in MK photo exhibition
A photo exhibition showcasing ground-breaking NHS medical research is currently available to view at Milton Keynes Central Library.
‘The Body Unlocked: How Research is Changing Lives’ showcases the people and science that make research happen at NHS, public health and social care services in Milton Keynes – where Brain Tumour Research head office is based – Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
The exhibition features 11 life-sized images including people who have taken part in studies, researchers at work and microscopic images of cells and bacteria.
It has been produced by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) to encourage people to take part in studies in the NHS, public health and social care. It is on display at the Milton Keynes Central Library until Friday 29th July.
Professor Manu Vatish, Clinical Director for the NIHR Clinical Research Network Thames Valley and South Midlands, one of the NIHR partners behind the exhibition, said: “Health research is vital for developing new treatments in the NHS. Clinical research can improve the quality of the care that we provide and help us learn more about various conditions.
“However, for any research to progress, we rely on the public to take part. This can include anything from filling out surveys or giving a blood sample to trialling a new medication or treatment.”
