Give me a place to stand and with a lever I will move the whole world — Archimedes
There is a lack of tools and techniques to assist researchers to properly understand brain cancer. Rather than continue to fund research 'downstream', it makes sense to direct more resources 'upstream' by funding the discovery, development and application of tools and techniques that empower researchers and clinicians in their work. The further upstream, the greater the potential impact from advancement.
Charlie Teo Foundation is exploring where researchers and clinicians face difficulties in the conduct of their work and then identifying and funding ways to address those difficulties, whether by developing new concepts or applying existing concepts in new ways. Like Archimedes’ famous quote, we are funding the tools to help our researchers find solutions and change the world.
