Major new RCSI study on GBM to be supported by biobank part funded by Brain Tumour Ireland

A major new study on glioblastoma (GBM) will be supported by the brain tumour biobank part funded by Brain Tumour Ireland.

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland is leading an international team of scientists on a major research study that aims to train the next generation of brain cancer researchers.

The project (“GLIOTRAIN”) has received funding of almost €3.9 million from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Framework Programme. We congratulate Professor Annette Byrne (RCSI) and her team on winning this significant European Commission Grant.

You can read more about this important RCSI study on their website here.

Brain Tumour Ireland is delighted that the brain tumour biobank which we are part funding, will support this study. You can read more about the biobank here.

The existence of the biobank is of course thanks to the many people who donate to Brain Tumour Ireland and who organise fundraising events for us.

Together we are working to improve outcomes for brain tumour patients and we thank you for your support.
