Brain tumours

Survival for patients with many types of malignant primary brain tumours or with brain metastasis has not improved much in the past 10 years, despite the introduction of some new treatments and despite our improved understanding of the biological bases of brain tumour development and metastasis. As such, better treatments for brain tumours and brain metastasis are a pressing need. The articles in this Focus issue, and the associated collection of Research Highlights published by the journal over the past two years, showcase the diverse research in this field and the unique challenges posed by brain tumours and brain metastases.
