A brain cancer research project at Cardiff University is getting almost £200,000 to fund two PhD students who will assist research into Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumours.
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumours are the most aggressive form of brain cancer and have the ability to invade healthy brain cells and resist drug and radiation therapies.
They're one of the biggest cancer killers of children and people under 40.
The project is aimed at developing more specific targeted therapies for patients.
The £180,000 funding was granted by Cancer Research Wales and Brain Tumour Research, and supported by the Thorne Mason Trust and Cardiff University.
The Throne Mason Trust, based near Haverfordwest, was set up by Debi and Mike Morgan after Mike was diagnosed with a GBM brain tumour in 2007.
Mike passed away in 2009 after receiving treatment.
