Leading the way in child cancer research

The thriving Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC) was established in 1997 and is now led by Professors David Walker and Richard Grundy. The University of Nottingham is the ideal base for their research as it already leads the way:

  • neuroscience
  • cancer
  • human development

Expertise

The Centre’s leaders have a huge range of experience in guiding national and international developments in clinical practice:

  • advising on health service developments
  • actively promoting the NHS cancer registration system and clinical trials

They also frequently attend conferences across the globe as principal members of clinical trials committees – the Childhood Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG, formerly UKCCSG) and the Société Internationale d’Oncologie Pediatrique (SIOP).
