There are numerous therapies that hold great promise for treating brain cancer patients, but a key challenge is determining which treatment is most likely to benefit an individual patient. Diagnosis currently relies on the classification and grading of tumors according to what can be seen by a pathologist in a microscope and this provides little insight into the molecular makeup.
There are new technologies through which we are developing an understanding of genes proteins and networks – offering the possibility to shift from a one-size fits all model. Your gift will help accelerate a cure for brain cancer through supporting pioneering innovation and technology to find the right therapy for the right patient at the right time. This approach will redefine the nature of the diagnosis and the treatment of brain cancer.
