A message from our CEO, Dan Knowles

2 min read

Happy New Year to you all. Together we’ve achieved some incredible things and 2024 sees Brain Tumour Research celebrate its 15th anniversary. What an incredible journey it’s been, the awareness and money you’ve helped us raise mean we are closer to a cure than ever.   

Following a record-breaking 2023, we are planning later this year to announce our fifth Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence and work towards our sixth. We’re also looking to attract record levels of income and invest more in research than ever before; and we will be launching our manifesto, in preparation for a general election in order to influence the national research spend. We’ll also be funding and supporting our largest ever community of researchers and strengthening relationships with our key stakeholders and in our game-changing collaborations.  

Throughout the year we'll be celebrating 15 astonishing achievements which you have helped make happen and launching 15 great ways in which you can continue to help us. Our busy 15th anniversary year kicks off with our brand-new Run 15 in February campaign which has just launched and you can find out more here: www.braintumourresearch.org/blogs/fundraise/run-15-in-february
