Our Funders

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.

MRC website


The Medical Research Council improves human health through world-class medical research. We fund research across the biomedical spectrum, from fundamental lab-based science to clinical trials, and in all major disease areas. Our research has resulted in life-changing discoveries for over a hundred years. We are a non-departmental public body funded through the government's science and research budget. We invest in research on behalf of the UK tax payer. Scientists apply for funding for their research and applications are reviewed by panels of independent experts.
