The Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Awards have been launched in partnership with The Brain Tumour Charity. The awards aim to help advance understanding about the biology of the disease and the challenges of translating discoveries into treatments.
The awards address six major themes including: unlocking new insights into brain tumors using neuroscience, unpicking brain tumors’ biology to design more effective drugs, exploiting the brain tumor environment to make better treatments, developing more accurate ways to study brain tumors, improving brain tumor diagnosis to make treatment more personal and developing kinder treatments for brain tumors.
