MP John Bercow celebrates opening of Research Centre of ExcellenceNov 02, 2014
The centre is the result of a partnership between the charity and Queen Mary University of London, in collaboration with the UCL Institute of Neurology, and marks a significant step in the charity’s mission to establish seven Research Centres of Excellence with funding of £7 million per year.
The charity, based at Padbury near Buckingham, has also set up partnerships with Plymouth University and Imperial College in London.
Mr Bercow said: “This is an historic moment for Brain Tumour Research. Based on what they have achieved already, the prognosis is now brighter for patients and families affected by this terrible disease.”
BTR chief executive Sue Farrington Smith added: “Today is a milestone for research. Together we are establishing a powerful new team of researchers who will share our ambition of creating a better future for those diagnosed and living with a brain tumour.”
