	abstract = {Gliomas are the most frequently occurring brain tumour, of which glioblastomas (WHO grade IV gliomas) are the most common subtype and carry a particularly poor prognosis, leading to 5-year survival rates of just 9.8% (1,2). Radiation is an effective treatment modality although dose escalation is limited by the narrow therapeutic index. Consequently, there is a clear and unmet clinical need for effective radiosensitisation strategies for glioblastoma which enhance anti-tumour efficacy without increasing dose-limiting normal tissue toxicity. The paucity of effective clinically validated radiosensitisers further highlights the need for novel therapeutic targets for radiosensitisation of glioblastoma.},
