How We Fund

Accelerating The Development of New Brain Tumor Treatments

We fund projects at each stage of the drug development pipeline to ensure promising leads are advanced as quickly as possible. Our pre-clinical screening program breaks down barriers to entry, our academic grants focus on novel therapies, and our industry investments bring the most promising treatments to patients quickly.

Speed Counts

Innovation and solid research should not linger in research labs.  Rather than issuing a yearly request for proposals (RFP), we are constantly scouting research labs for advances which can be translated into new treatments for patients.

Send Us Your Brain Tumor Research Proposal

We look for proposals which identify a problem and layout a clear roadmap to find a solution.  Please limit your initial research summary to 1,000 words or fewer. If your ideas align well with our strategic vision, we will contact you to obtain additional information.

Your proposal should directly address the following questions:

Research Idea Summarize your research idea in one sentence.
Problem What is the problem you are seeking to solve?
Solution How is your approach unique?
Why Now? What advances, if any, have occurred that make this project possible at this particular time?
Approach Describe your research and development plan. If your idea were to work, what’s next?
Team & Partners Who are the key members of your team? Who else will you work with to advance this idea?

Resources & Financials

What level of funding will you need to make this happen? Beyond funding, what other support might we be able to provide?

Challenge Describe what you see as your most significant challenge.


More than anything else, we care about impact. Explain how your proposed research will help brain cancer patients.
