Researchers, doctors, patients and students will benefit from a new $3 million Brain Tumor Research Chair. Dr. Gregory Cairncross, Department Head of Clinical Neurosciences and a professor at the University of Calgary, was announced as the first recipient on Tue., Nov. 5.
"We're going to build a brain tumor research centre for the twenty-first century," said Cairncross. "To some degree, we're still working with twentieth century treatments. The clues to how we move forward are becoming clear."
