BRIAN will provide cost-free access to data sets from national healthcare organisations.

How sharing your experience helps

Both NHS Digital and Public Health England have allowed us access to data of brain tumour patients over a period stretching back 10 years. This valuable data has allowed us to produce fascinating insights relating to diagnosis and treatment.

By recording and allowing access to your anonymised data, researchers will better understand people’s quality of life when living with a brain tumour diagnosis. They can also use the collective experiences of patients to drive forward research into brain tumours and accelerate progress towards a cure.
