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.
