QMUL Research Lab Tour

Posted: 23rd April 2015

We had an inspirational tour of the Research Labs at QMUL today. Thanks to Brain Tumour Research, who are raising money to fund scientists there to find a cure for Glioblastoma, the deadliest & most common brain tumour found in adult, the type of tumour that robbed us of our beautiful Jake. To fund this dedicated team is a million pounds a year or £2740 a day. So this is why we need to keep raising money to help fund the fight.
