Watch Oxford Centre Member Professor Nicola Sibson discuss her research into mapping brain tumours. Her team discovered a protein that helps map the edge of brain tumours more clearly so they show up on MRI scans.

Oxford Brain Tumour Open Day 2015

On 11 November 2015, there was an open day at the John Radcliffe Hospital for brain tumour patients and carers. The aim was to show what clinical researchers in Oxford are doing to improve diagnosis and care. The event was organised in partnership between the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences and the Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre, and was supported by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre and the Brain Tumour Charity. Fifty people of a wide range of ages attended the day, which included tours of the Neuropathology Lab and the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the brain. Visitors had the chance to look down a microscope and discover how tissue is prepared for analysis, as well as talking to a neurosurgeon about how he performs operations, and seeing an MRI scanner in action. The event was live-streamed online, see below for the Google Hangout footage.

Be part of the Neuro-Oncology Working Group

We are always keen to welcome new members to our working groups, and value contributions from those working in disciplines not traditionally linked to cancer research. If you want to find out more about neuro-oncology research, have some research that you think may be of interest to this group, or would like to make connections within this community then please get in touch with the Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre team on cancercentre@oncology.ox.ac.uk
