Researchers within the CBTRC are investigating a number of molecular research avenues that could lead to new targets for brain tumour treatments. They are also working to optimise drug delivery to tumour sites within the brain, bypassing the body’s protective membrane – the blood brain barrier. CBTRC researchers are also involved in national and international clinical trials programmes that are testing new and modified treatment approaches.
