About the National Brain Tumor Society
National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for people living with a brain tumor today and anyone who will be diagnosed tomorrow. This means effecting change in the system at all levels.
We have a rigorous and thoughtful agenda, integrating research and public policy to bridge critical gaps. Starting with discovery science, to clinical trial design and the development of new therapies, there are many opportunities to make improvements and speed the momentum of new findings.
It’s time to build on progress and transform tomorrow, today.
We were formed in 2008 by the merger of two leading organizations that had served the brain tumor community: the National Brain Tumor Foundation and the Brain Tumor Society. Both legacy organizations had been formed in the 1980s by parents and other concerned individuals who were committed to increasing both research funding and access to resources specific to brain tumors. National Brain Tumor Society is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.
