Neuro oncology clinical trials

The neuro oncology team at The Christie, is one of the most research active neuro oncology consultancies in the UK.

We are committed to clinical research aimed at furthering our understanding of brain tumours in order to develop new treatment strategies that can improve the outcome of patients.

The team is involved in a number of clinical trials and is consistently one of the top recruiters in the NIHR Clinical Research Network (NCRN) portfolio.

The new proton beam therapy service being built at The Christie, expected to be the first in the UK, is an example of leading treatment for gliomas, metastases and skull base tumours.

This will offer an opportunity for research which will be unique in the UK due to the co-localisation of staff, services, equipment, and the draw of patients from a national pool.
