Professor Geoff Pilkington to give talk at July 25th support group

Recently we had the immense privilege of meeting Professor Geoff Pilkington, Professor of Cellular and Molecular The Wight Brainy BunchNeuro-Oncology and Head of The Brain Tumour Research Centre in Portsmouth and also had the opportunity to look around his laboratories.

The Brain Tumour Research Centre dedicates its research to focusing on the mechanisms of brain tumour development, and progression of response to therapy. Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40, than any other cancer and despite all that has been learnt, the incidence of primary brain tumours has risen at an alarming rate over the past few decades.

We were very pleased to welcome Professor Pilkington to our monthly support group meeting on Tuesday 25th July. He talked about the advances in brain tumour research, the development of novel therapeutic approaches and improved outcomes for patients with all forms of brain tumour. There was also an opportunity for individuals to ask specific questions related to their own individual circumstances or general questions focused around his work.

This was an amazing opportunity for anyone living with a brain tumour or family, friends or carers to get first hand information regarding up to date research, current trials or even learn about the potentially ground-breaking scientific break-though surrounding Liquid Aspirin.

Thank you to Professor Pilkington and all who attended.
