Professor Leach and his team are researching the cancer stem cells in paediatric glioblastoma. This brain tumour tends to resist treatment, and we need to find out why, so that life-saving new treatments can be developed to fight this extremely hard-to-treat cancer. This project is studying cancer stem cells in paediatric gliobastomas, to help scientists look for new ways to help children affected by this treatment-resistant cancer.
This research project on paediatric glioblastomas has been successfully completed. Your donations allow us to fund ground-breaking research that can improve treatments given to children with cancer. Thank you. Your help allows us to continue to find ways to drive up the chances of survival for children with cancer and reduce the toxic side effects that can affect the rest of their lives.
