Patients and supporters were given a rare glimpse
of pioneering research into brain tumours at a University of
Wolverhampton open day.
The Brain Tumour UK Neuro-Oncology Research Centre opened
its doors to the public for a day giving
visitors the opportunity to tour the laboratories, meet
the scientists and learn about the important research carried out
at the Centre over the past year.
Professor John Darling, a leading neuro-oncologist and Dean of
the School of Applied
Sciences at the University, said: “We launched the Brain Tumour
UK Neuro-Oncology Research Centre in 2010, and since then it has
gone from strength to strength. Our work is making serious in-roads
into finding the genes that trigger childhood and adult brain
tumours and has the potential to make a real difference in the
fight against cancer."
Brain Tumour UK, the UK-wide charity that funds the centre, were
also at the open day to talk with visitors about brain tumour
research, awareness and support, and why this centre is vital in
the fight against this devastating condition.
The Brain Tumour UK Neuro-Oncology Research Centre combines
Wolverhampton’s expertise in adult brain cancer with a team from
the renowned Institute of Neurology in London led by Dr Tracy Warr,
a leading expert in cancerous childhood and so-called “low grade”
adult brain tumours.
