2014年3月6日讯 /生物谷BIOON/ --最近英国的伦敦大学玛丽皇后学院、普茨茅斯大学和浦利茅斯大学组建了一个脑癌研究中心,这个中心旨在联合三所学校的资源加速英国对脑部癌症的研究。一位发言人表示,目前脑癌是造成英国40岁以下成年人死亡最主要的癌症种类之一。这三所大学是经过the charity Brain Tumour Research筛选产生的,每所大学没劲将接受1百万英镑的研究经费用于该领域的研究。来自the charity Brain Tumour Research的Sue Farrington Smith表示今后这一中心的科研人员将与国内外科学家进行紧密的合作以加快该领域的研究进展。而来自浦利茅斯大学的Professor Oliver Hannemann同时表示,这一联合中心的成立不但有助于脑癌疗法的研究,更促进了公众对这一疾病的认知。(生物谷Bioon.com)

详细英文报道:

Three universities which research brain tumours have been named as centres of excellence.

The Queen Mary University of London, the University of Portsmouth and Plymouth University will be part of a national network of scientists.

The aim is to revolutionise research into the tumours, which kill more people under 40 than any other cancer, a spokesman said.

The announcement means the centres will also each receive ?1m a year.

The universities were chosen by the charity Brain Tumour Research.

Sue Farrington Smith from the charity said they would form "a new and powerful network, collaborating with each other and other institutes, within the UK and internationally".

Professor Oliver Hannemann, the leader of the Plymouth researchers, said the centre would be "for research but also to raise awareness".

Ben Mee, from Dartmoor Zoo, who was made famous by the film We Bought a Zoo, lost his wife Katherine to a brain tumour in 2006.

He said: "I was more than frustrated at the time when we were exposed to the relentlessness of this disease.

"The idea it could possibly be solved here, locally, would be amazing."

In 2012, researchers at Plymouth University were given ?400,000 to investigate ways of treating brain tumours by Cancer Research UK and the Medical Research Council.
