Brain cancer research to receive £45m funding

Jeremy Hunt has announced that an estimated £20m in funding will be invested in brain cancer research through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) over the next five 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 £25m in research into brain tumours over the next five years. This is on top of £13m each year on the research and development of cancer treatments.
