Brain tumours

The NIHR is calling for research on brain tumours. See our current funding opportunities.

This call supports the report of the Department of Health & Social Care Task & Finish Working Group on Brain Tumour Research.  It encourages collaborative applications that demonstrate how they build on recent initiatives and investment in the area made by the NIHR, the MRC and other research funders.

Research may involve any aspect of the diagnosis, treatment, support or care of patients with brain tumours, including access to or the delivery of services.  Applications must be in the remit of one or more of the participating NIHR programmes.  Research methods may involve primary research or evidence synthesis, including systematic reviews, modelling studies or the analysis of existing datasets.

Proposals should clearly identify the research context of their proposal in terms of recent and currently funded UK and international research in the area and the potential impact of their proposed research for patients and the NHS.

For more information, including opening dates for different programmes, please see the highlight notice.

For examples of funded projects please see the Journals Library and the Dissemination Centre website.  If you are interested in funded research in a specific programme please see the relevant programme page.
