Following Tessa Jowell’s call for action to improve brain tumour treatment, research and survival, the Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission (TJBCM) was formed. The mission consists of passionate academics, doctors, members of cancer charities, patients, and other individuals to help facilitate a new national strategy for brain tumours.
The TJBCM serves as a convening body for these organisations, enabling them to work together to make a tangible change in brain tumour treatment and research. TJBCM is neither a charity, fundraising nor grant-awarding body.
Over the next five years the TJBCM is focusing on six strategic objectives, organised through individual Strategic Programmes. These initiatives are:
- Clinical trials
- Training for physicians
- Emerging data and technology
- Tessa Jowell Centre Designation
