Brain And Spinal Cord Tumours
Potential new drug targets for an aggressive type of brain tumour have been uncovered in the lab, thanks to a ‘reverse engineering’ approach using DNA editing.
Our scientists have shown it’s possible to detect brain tumour DNA in the liquid surrounding the brain using a cheap technique.
Scientists are making strides in developing liquid biopsies for brain tumours by detecting tumour DNA in the fluid from around the brain and spine.
We look at why researchers are working towards brain tumour treatments that are not only more effective, but also kinder.
We’re launching a new Children's Brain Tumour Centre of Excellence to speed up the discovery of new treatments for children with brain tumours.
Our researchers are working on a new way to improve chemotherapy treatment for aggressive brain tumours, using the precious metal palladium.
Our scientists are working to improve brain tumour diagnosis. Find out how this could make treatment more personal, and guide people onto clinical trials.
Growing ‘mini brains’ in dishes is just one of the innovative ways our scientists are studying brain tumours in the lab. Find out how this could lead to new treatments....
