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
has been allocated to this devastating disease.

Our first UK Research Centre of Excellence was launched at the
University of Portsmouth in 2011. Led by Prof Geoff Pilkington,
this is now one of the largest dedicated teams of lab-based
researchers working on this disease within the UK.

The team is working on five complementary research programmes
to investigate brain tumours in both adults and children, including
primary and metastatic tumours. Their goal is to create novel and
multi-targeted therapies for the treatment of brain cancer.

They have also developed a pioneering all-human model of the
blood-brain barrier, allowing them to identify drugs that can enter
into the brain in order to reach and attack brain tumours directly.
The team is also working with chemists to modify the structure of
some existing drugs or develop tools that will allow the drugs to
enter the brain and kill the cancerous cells.

Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
