The Brain Tumour Charity is the world's leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally. Committed to saving and improving lives, we're moving further, faster to help every single person affected by a brain tumour. We're set on finding new treatments, offering the highest level of support and driving urgent change. And we're doing it right now. Because we understand that when you, or someone you love, is diagnosed with a brain tumour – a cure really can't wait.


At The Brain Tumour Charity, we believe that no one should have to live with a brain tumour or lose a loved one to a brain tumour. Advances in both treatments and quality of life care need to be made – and they need to be made quickly. That's why in 2015, we launched our ambitious strategy, Defeating Brain Tumours: Our Strategy 2015-2020, to define our priorities as we aim to create a world where brain tumours are defeated. We think it's shocking that whilst survival has doubled across all cancers, survival rates for those with brain tumours have improved little in over 40 years. In fact, at just 14%, they're one of the poorest of all cancers. Treatments haven't changed in 40 years and brain tumours still remain the biggest cancer killer of children. Yet, despite these facts, less than 2% of the hundreds of millions invested in national cancer research funding in the UK every year is spent on brain tumours. This must change. As the world's leading brain tumour charity, we are now uniquely positioned to catalyse such change. Defeating Brain Tumours is our five year strategy to drive a step change in improving the future for those affected by a brain tumour.

The Focused Ultrasound Foundation was created to improve the lives of millions of people worldwide by accelerating the development of focused ultrasound, an early-stage noninvasive therapeutic technology with the potential to transform the treatment of many medical disorders. The Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that focused ultrasound finds its place as a mainstream therapy within years, not decades, and works to fund research, foster collaboration, and build awareness among patients and professionals. Since its establishment in 2006, it has become the largest non-governmental source of funding for focused ultrasound research. To learn more, visit
