National Brain Tumor Society Announces Launch of Defeat GBM Research Collaborative
Date:3/26/2013

BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) March 26, 2013

National Brain Tumor Society, the largest nonprofit dedicated to the brain tumor community in the United States, today announced the formation of the Defeat GBM Research Collaborative. Defeat GBM is a strategic research initiative, which aims to double the five-year survival rate of patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) – the most common and deadliest form of brain cancer – in just five years.

To achieve this goal, the Defeat GBM Research Collaborative will connect leading brain tumor researchers from top cancer institutions across the globe, in a tightly focused and goal-driven effort. Through research collaboration, synergistic projects will be combined and driven by investigator teams with proven track records of results to create significant improvement in patient survival. The primary goal will be to share data among all projects and investigator teams within Defeat GBM to better inform the overall effort, and to advance potential therapies down the drug discovery pipeline.

“Defeat GBM draws upon successful science and proven funding models from other disease populations that have yet to be utilized in brain tumor research,” said N. Paul TonThat, Executive Director of the National Brain Tumor Society. “The brain tumor community can no longer spend years and millions of dollars to achieve only incremental progress in this deadly disease.”

A team of senior brain cancer experts acting as the Strategic Scientific Advisory Council (SSAC) will oversee the Defeat GBM Research Collaborative. The Advisors will chart the strategic direction of Defeat GBM research, regularly review Defeat GBM’s achievements and progress, and hold the project teams accountable for attaining key milestones and annual goals during the five-year quest, which will also determine continued financial support. Defeat GBM’s construct is also specifically designed to encourage and integrate additi
