Neuro-oncology

Neuro oncology

This PSP was set up to identify and promote the clinical research questions of greatest importance to children and adults with tumours arising in the brain or spinal cord.

PSP Lead Dr Robin Grant said "This is a unique opportunity for people who have been affected by brain or spinal cord tumours to influence the direction of future clinical research to improve the diagnosis, treatment and management of these tumours."
