National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £30-35 million a year
Charities vital in supporting clinical trials
The important role of charities in developing and supporting clinical trials is highlighted in a new blog post on our website.
It takes considerable effort, time and money for a new scientific discovery to be translated into a new treatment and a wide range of organisations, including charities, play vital roles at various stages of the ‘bench to bedside’ pipeline.
Our vision is to find a cure for brain tumours and we know it is the discovery science and early-stage translational research that will enable us to make the breakthroughs that will lead us closer to a cure.
At our Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence at Imperial College we are supporting a clinical trial investigating a range of non-invasive optical methods during neurosurgery, specifically during brain tumour debulking / resection. It is likely that further new clinical trials will be set up over the next few years based on significant findings from the work of our Research Centres.
