About the Organizations
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.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure
Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC²) is a national organization with one goal: to find a cure for brain cancer.
ABC² uses an entrepreneurial venture philanthropy approach to bring more treatments to patients sooner by stimulating new research and the accelerated development of new therapies for brain cancer. They look forward to the day when all patients who are diagnosed with brain cancer are told they have a manageable disease.
ABC² provides researchers with the pivotal support they need to make critical breakthroughs. They fund novel translational research aimed at finding the fastest possible route to a cure. ABC²'s partners range from medical research centers to early-stage biotechnology companies to large multi-national pharmaceutical companies. Since brain cancer affects a relatively small portion of the population, ABC² recognizes the importance of investing in the early stages of the most novel sectors of the discovery and development pipeline in order to "buy down the risk" for our partners and speed progress of innovative new treatments to the clinic.
