The role of tumour-initiating cells in glioma (2009–2012)

The overall incidence of primary brain tumours in the Western world is 10 per 100,000 people. Unlike many other tumours, these occur in patients of all ages and comprise the second most common tumour type among children and young adults. Most brain tumours remain incurable. We are using our expertise in the field of neural stem cell research to characterise tumour cells responsible for resistance to treatment, with the final goal of identifying new targets for therapeutic intervention.
