Plymouth Citybus have joined forces with the charity Brain Tumour Research, to support the world-leading Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence at the University.
The launch event perfectly coincides with the charity’s national initiative, Wear a Hat Day, to raises awareness of the woefully underfunded research into brain tumours, which continue to kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.
If you’re in the city centre between 09:00 and 13:00, then come and look at the vibrant bus which features the Brain Tumour Research team at the University, to learn more about the amazing research happening on your doorstep.
You can meet members of the research team and find out from the charity how to get involved in fundraising for this crucial research.
Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence
The University of Plymouth is a Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence, one of only four in the UK. Focusing on low-grade brain tumours, our research led by Professor Oliver Hanemann is classed as world-leading and aims to discover new potential treatments and a cure for this devastating disease.
