This project is looking paediatric glioblastoma (pGBM) and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), two brain tumours that affect children, and are currently incurable. To stop children dying from them, we need to learn more about how these tumours resist treatment and spread through the brain. Then we may be able to find new drugs to target and treat them.
We’re looking at how two currently incurable brain tumours that affect children resist treatment and spread through the brain. This should help us to find new, effective drugs to treat children with these cancers.
