Brain Tumour Research exists to raise the awareness of and grow the funding for scientific research into brain tumours and improve outcomes for brain tumour patients - click here for more.

We are the only national charity in the UK that is dedicated to granting 100% of its funds to continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours and are a leading voice calling for greater support and action for research into brain tumours.

We support the UK’s largest group of laboratory-based scientists progressing world-class research into brain tumours, working to glean new layers of understanding about this disease.They are continually publishing peer-reviewed results in leading international scientific journals.

Brain tumour research in the UK is chronically underfunded, receiving just 1% of national cancer research spending. And the statistics are shocking:

  • • 16,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour each year with more children and people under the age of 40 dying of a brain tumour than any other cancer
  • • Up to 40% of all cancers spread to the brain
  • • An average of just 18.8% of patients survive beyond 5 years (compared with 50% for all cancers)
  • • Every year there is a 4% increase in incidence and there has been a 16% increase in deaths from brain tumours in past 10 years

Help us raise £7 million a year to fund seven ‘Centres of Hope’ across the UK that will set new standards for national and international collaboration to find a cure for brain tumours, whilst educating the next generation of leading neuro-oncologists.
