Neuroblastoma is a childhood cancer affecting around 100 children under the age of five in the UK each year.  Neuroblastoma is the second most common childhood cancer after leukaemia, but is responsible for a disproportionate number of childhood cancer deaths. We fund medical research to find new, more effective and kinder treatments for the disease.  


The primary activity of the charity is fund-raising and allocating funds to the best research projects, through a rigorous grant assessment process. Neuroblastoma UK also organises a biennial Neuroblastoma Research Symposium, bringing the UK researcher and clinical communities together with international experts for presentations, discussion and collaboration. We particularly encourage younger researchers and those new to the field to participate. In conjunction with the Children’s Cancer & Leukaemia Group, the charity produces a comprehensive information booklet about neuroblastoma for parents and families.
