Prof Elga De Vries - VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Prof De Vries talks to ecancer at the Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Conference 2018 in London about the difficulty of passing drugs across the blood-brain barrier (BBB).

Two possible developments are discussed; packaging drugs in liposomes, and bursting micro-bubbles on to specific areas of the BBB to release the barrier using ultrasound.
