Department of Health and Social Care | 2018| Report of the Task and Finish
Working Group on Brain Tumour Research
The conclusions of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) task and finish working group on brain tumour research have been published. The working group comprised clinicians, charities, a patient carer and officials to discuss how to increase the level and impact of research into brain tumours, removing barriers to research and how to generate high-quality research. It is the first time that research funders have joined together to look at how this area can be developed (DHSC).
Following such a prolonged period of under-funding, the Working Group identified the of fundable research applications currently being received as a principal issue,
