Current research into brain and nerve cell tumours

Our strategy

A scientist

For the past 120 years, we’ve been making discoveries that have saved countless lives. But we have so much more to do. Our strategy sets out how we'll accelerate progress towards a better future.

Saving lives through our research

We have pledged to tackle brain tumours as a top priority – it’s one of four ‘hard to treat’ cancers outlined in our 2014 strategy. We’re tackling brain and nerve cell tumours from all angles, studying the underlying biology of the disease and testing new treatments in clinical trials. Below are some examples of what our researchers are doing right now.
