Registrations are now open for the 2019 UK Paediatric Brain Tumour Symposium. This year brainstrust, Brain Tumour Research, Children With Cancer UK and The Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre are collaborating to bring you research updates and workshops.
The UK is at the forefront of the fight against brain tumours. Around 500 children are diagnosed with a brain tumour each year and countless families are living with the disease.

Cannabinoids and brain tumours
Ketosis and brain tumours and the ketogenic diet
