Brain cancer gets big boost in research funding

Okay - this is a wonderful use of money. Especially since 3 of the projects will focus on brain cancer in children. How can anybody me mad about that?

The Canadian Cancer Society, in partnership with Brain Canada and the Government of Canada, will fund an additional $5 million in brain cancer research, Health Minister Rona Ambrose announced at a press conference in Toronto today (February 4 is World Cancer Day).

Four large research grants – valued at $1.25 million each – were awarded to research teams in Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa. Three of the 4 projects will focus on brain cancer in children.
