Moving Forward with New Leadership

Steve Case, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure’s Board of Directors Chairman

In January of 2006, we brought Kate Carr on board as President and CEO to continue the momentum established since our 2001 inception and bring new energy to our mission. Kate is leading the organization’s revitalized efforts to increase the number of potential therapies discovered and move them rapidly into the clinic for patients.

We are thrilled to have a new leader of Kate’s caliber. Her passion for our mission and her experience building partnerships as an advocate in the not for profit and government sectors will be invaluable as we intensify our efforts to hasten a cure for brain cancer.

Kate Carr brings extensive experience in politics, government, advocacy, and public-private partnerships. Prior to her seven years as the President and CEO of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, she was the Chief Operating Officer for the Welfare to Work Partnership. Kate also served as a Special Assistant to the President in the Clinton White House, where she oversaw outreach and partnerships with the business community.
