Ed Evans Scholarship Awarded


The scholarship designed to promote original research in the area of neuro-oncology in memory of Ed, was recently awarded to Professor Mark Gumbleton at Cardiff University. Professor Gumbleton will study cancer stem cells, and how this specialised cell type contributes to the aggressive and treatment resistant features of glioma. In particular, they will examine the function of a molecule called caveolin-1, known to be present in most glioblastomas, although its exact role remains to be determined.
