Brain tumour and childhood cancer research


Five years on from the Petitions Committee’s report on funding for research into brain tumours in 2016, this inquiry will seek to assess progress against the Committee’s recommendations. It will consider changes in the brain tumour research environment since the Committee last took evidence on the topic in 2019, including the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. It will also follow up on points raised in the December 2020 debate on e-petition 300027, exploring key barriers to progress for childhood brain tumours and other childhood cancers with the worst survival outcomes, such as DIPG.
