Current Research

Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity funds world-class research in our region to find treatments and ultimately, a cure.

Over the next 3 years we have committed to spend over £404,000 on paediatric and adult brain tumour research.

Covid-19 has caused some delays to the research we expected to take place but is slowly starting up again over the coming months.

Current Research

This research will use an ex-vivo model to assess responses of glioblastoma tumour cells to drugs.

A new Leeds based brain tumour Tissue Bank has been established in Leeds, meaning researchers working across Yorkshire and beyond will be better resourced to continue their world-renowned work. The project will allow more collaboration locally and nationally, providing state-of-the-art resources to collect, examine and conserve fresh tissue samples.

We are part funding (25%) the Associate Professorship of Ryan Mathew at the University of Leeds. Ryan is also Honorary Consultant Neurosurgeon at Leeds General Infirmary. This funding is for a period of four years from 2019 - 2023.

It has been observed that steroids may reduce the efficiency of standard treatments for glioblastoma.

This one year study looks at new selective steroids.
Developing tissue-on-chip technology to measure the response of brain tumours to established therapy and novel drugs.
