Brain tumours can be devastating. Due to their potentially aggressive nature, treatment often requires surgery, followed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. This often comes at a significant cost to patient health, with up to 50% of patients developing radiation-induced injury to their brain. Dr Thomas Park is a Senior Research Fellow at the Neurosurgery Research Unit at the Centre for Brain Research. He and his research team are working to reveal new information about this collateral damage.
