Brain Tumour North West
Brain Tumour North West is a strategic alliance between UCLan, the Neurosurgical Unit and Neuropathology Department at the Royal Preston hospital and other universities and NHS institutions across the North West. It brings together academics, clinicians and other allied healthcare professionals in a multidisciplinary approach to defeating this devastating form of cancer.
Unlike other forms of cancer, there are currently no UK- based research groups of scientists and clinicians looking at brain tumours. In this respect, the alliance optimises access to research facilities and rare tumour material, consolidate local expertise and knowledge, and provide the critical mass that is essential for developing and delivering new research proposals.
