We are unable to specify an exact date when the remainder of the £40 million will be allocated, as we are relying on researchers to submit high-quality research proposals in this very difficult area. However, we are working to improve the number and quality of applications by working with the Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission towards funding workshops for previously unsuccessful researchers to support them in submitting higher quality research applications.
