Dr David Jenkinson

The Brain Tumour Charity, Hampshire, United Kingdom

David has over 20 years’ experience in oncology research after gaining a degree in biochemistry from Brunel University.  He undertook a PhD at University of London before joining Cancer Research UK as a postdoctoral researcher.  David then led the biology at a company developing therapeutics to control the expression of genes in cancer.

David then worked for Cancer Research Technology where he gained experience in technology assessment, protection, development and licensing.  Whilst in this post, he introduced several innovative approaches to ensure progression of discoveries towards patients, including securing orphan designations, industry co-funding agreements and the establishment of industry-academia drug discovery alliances.

David joined The Brain Tumour Charity in 2016 where he leads the research team and is responsible for delivering the research strategy to Double Survival and Halve the Harm.  In this role he has been responsible for ensuring the best quality research is funded, no matter where in the world it takes place, and also for exploring new models of research funding to accelerate progress in this underserved disease.

David has a passion for ensuring basic research is translated for patient benefit and tumours are spotted at a stage where they are more easily treatable.  He brings a collaborative approach and is determined to make a difference for those affected by these brain tumours.
