Land's End to John O'Groats on two wheels

Tackling 70 miles in 14 days on two wheels, Stuart Ryall aims to raise £5,000 to support the world-leading brain tumour research here.

Stuart is adding to the amazing total being raised in memory of a loved colleague, John McMahon, who lost his life to a brain tumour. Funds raised will support a PhD student in Professor Hanemann's lab.

Top scientist to ride 100 miles for Brain Tumour Research

Professor of Neuroscience, David Parkinson, is set to ride 100 miles to raise funds for Brain Tumour Research at the RideLondon cycle event on the 30 July.

Professor Parkinson is part of our team of scientists undertaking world-leading research in our Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence and so knows the value of every penny that goes towards the research.

Lab tours

Throughout the year we host a series of research laboratory tours. It's an opportunity to see the labs and ask questions to the scientists who undertake our world-leading research.

Visitors will be looked after by our regional Brain Tumour Research representative and shown the ‘Wall of Hope’, created to celebrate those who help fund the research, recognised by personalised plaques and significant dates. Each plaque represents £2,740 raised – which is the running cost per day of the laboratories.

Whether you are already a fundraiser or would like to be, or just have an interest in the amazing research that happens here, please get in touch to book a place on a tour.
