Hope is obtained everyday with new advances in research in the neuro-oncology field in Canada. Over time research has led to: improvements to technologies allowing us to view the brain; advances in surgical techniques, radiation practices and treatments for all tumour grades; as well as improvements for pediatric patients. The entire research program is funded thanks to generous donors from across Canada.
Five Canadian researchers have been awarded funds to further investigate the causes, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours. Read more about this exciting research!
Thanks to the generosity of donors, research is moving forward with the awarding of funds to promising young reseachers through fellowships and studentships. Projects include investigations into: medulloblastoma, gliomas, pituitary tumours and tumour progression.
