Date:11/19/2013

Newton, MA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

National Brain Tumor Society, the largest nonprofit dedicated to the brain tumor community in the United States, recently announced further details on its Defeat GBM Research Collaborative, 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. Details include the nature of the four (4) simultaneous and synergistic projects that make up the overall Initiative, as well as the partner institution and/or lead principal investigators responsible for each.

“After we first shared information about the construct of the Defeat GBM Research Collaborative earlier this year, we heard a great amount of enthusiasm from the brain tumor community,” said N. Paul TonThat, CEO, National Brain Tumor Society. “Since then, our staff and advisors have spent a great deal of time planning, discussing, and finalizing the specific research projects, as well as refining the structure to allow each of the individual efforts to feed into the whole. We’re extremely excited to get to work on meeting our goals.”

The timelines, designs, aims, and integration of the projects, as well as how the teams will continuously share and transfer ideas and data as they move along, were solidified during a recent meeting of the world-class brain tumor researchers participating in the Defeat GBM Research Collaborative. The four projects are: target discovery, drug development, predictive biomarkers, and systems biology:
