Our Ongoing Support for Paediatric Research

Representatives from Brain Tumour Action and the Astro Low Grade Glioma Fund met up in London at the Blizard Institute on March 14th. We were given an extremely warm welcome, not to mention both a delicious lunch and tea. The staff gave presentations about their current findings and then took us on a tour of the laboratories where we were able to view some of the work for ourselves.

The research team, led by the indefatigable Professor Denise Sheer, is studying the epigenetics of childhood low grade brain tumours. We feel greatly privileged to be able to part-fund this groundbreaking work for a second year.
