About the Organisation

Organisation Name : Charlie Teo Foundation

The Charlie Teo Foundation is an Australian charity founded in October 2017 by global neurosurgeon Charlie Teo to shake up the way brain cancer research is funded in Australia.

Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more young people under 40 than any other cancer, yet the survival rate has increased just 1% over the past 30 years.

We are working to change those numbers. The Charlie Teo Foundation runs efficiently and effectively in funding and inspiring the most brilliant and disruptive thinkers undertaking brain cancer research.
