Brain tumour research in the UK to receive £45 million in funding from the Department of Health and Social Care and Cancer Research UK.
Health and Social Care Secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced that an estimated £20 million in funding will be invested through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) over the next 5 years.
The funding will start with a formal call to research teams to put forward new proposals, to access NIHR funding in April.
In addition, Cancer Research UK will invest £25 million in research into brain tumours over the next 5 years. This is on top of £13 million each year on the research and development of cancer treatments.
