We've established the dedicated Brain Tumour UK
Neuro-Oncology Research Centre to lead the way in identifying the
genetic causes of brain tumours and the treatments to deal with
Around 8,500 people will develop a brain tumour in the UK this
year. Many of these will be malignant and respond poorly to
therapy. Spending on brain tumour research is significantly lower
than on many other types of cancer and this undoubtedly has
hindered the development of new, effective treatments.
The Brain Tumour UK Neuro-oncology Research Centre at the
University of Wolverhampton was established in October 2009.
It brought together two research groups
These two groups have complementary skills in cell biology and
molecular genetics and a shared interest in experimental
The investment from Brain Tumour UK is allowing
these two groups to develop new medicines for brain tumours based
on a greater understanding of their fundamental biology.

The aims of the Research Centre are to:
A number of other scientists at the University of Wolverhampton
collaborate with the Neuro-oncology Research Centre bringing
additional expertise gained in other areas of cancer research to
combat these devastating tumours.
