Our Funder

brain tumour research website


Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to this devastating disease. This is unacceptable! Brain Tumour Research are striving to fund a network of seven dedicated research centres whilst challenging the government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research.


Brain Tumour Research are calling on the Government to ring-fence £110 million of current and new funding to kick-start an increase in the national investment in brain tumour research to £35 million a year by 2028.

You can read more about the petition here. Help them reach 100,000 signatures by Tuesday 31st October 2023.


Brain Tumour Research Novel Therapeutics Accelerator (BTR-NTA):

For tumour based studies, once your project has finished, you may want to consider the Brain Tumour Research Novel Therapeutics Accelerator (BTR-NTA) programme.

Funded by our funder, Brain Tumour Research, the BTR-NTA is an accelerator programme that provides independent and holistic guidance to help researchers position their therapeutic or technology along a realistic pathway to clinical trials. The BTR-NTA welcomes applications from academic and industry researchers developing any type of therapeutic (including delivery technologies) for patients with a brain tumour.

More information can be found on the Brain Tumour Research website under Accelerating treatments.
