National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Cancer Research UK join funders at APPG inquiry
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours (APPGBT) held a sixth oral evidence session today as part of its ongoing inquiry, Pathway to a Cure – breaking down the barriers.
The witnesses today were from charitable funders of brain tumour research with representatives from Cancer Research UK, Children with Cancer and Brain Research UK.
Brain Tumour Research and The Brain Tumour Charity were both in attendance as inquiry panel members.
The importance of a long-term strategy, what could, or should, be expected of Government, working across the neurosciences and the role of smaller charities were under the microscope in a wide-ranging discussion managed by the expert chairmanship of Derek Thomas MP.
As with the content of all previous written and oral evidence today’s discussions will feed into the inquiry report that will be delivered early in 2023.
