funding medical research into
cancer, rheumatology and arthritis

Dr Dan Williamson

In a project supported by the Foundation since 2010, Dr Dan Williamson has been looking at tumours arising in the brain using state-of-the art techniques which can examine the entire genetic code for the damage which can lead to cancer. Using this information he will be able to devise tests that can determine the best treatment, tailored for an individual child based on his or her tumour type. This will help to eliminate unnecessary damage to normal brain tissue-a particular problem in the developing brain.

The results produced by this project have enabled Dr Williamson, working with his colleagues Professor Clifford and Dr Bailey, to attract more than £1m pounds of additional funding from a national charity to continue their studies in this important area of research.
