The June issue of TIME Magazine featured a special edition on cancer research advancements and the charities that fund them.  Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure was named one of "the stars of the venture-charity model" - an innovative non-profit model that is focused on results and driven by a sense of entrepreneurism. 

Last week, a branch of the World Health Organization weighed in on the much debated question of a cell phone/brain cancer link.  The International Agency for Research into Cancer (IARC) announced that "radio frequency electromagnetic fields" - the type transmitted by by cell phones - as a "possible" cause of cancer in humans.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and the Chordoma Foundation are co-hosting the 57th meeting of the National Cancer Institute Director's Consumer Liaison Group (DCLG) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina from May 18 - 20th.

On Friday, April 29th, American Idol® David Cook performed a charity concert in Washington, DC to support brain tumor research and support services. 

In 2010, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure partnered with the state-funded Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research on an unprecedented research matching grant program.  Dollars raised at our Florida Brain Cancer 5k were matched by the state of Florida for a total of $325,000 in brain cancer research grants to three institutions:  University of Florida, University of West Florida and University of Central Florida. 

Gaithersburg, MD - On March 17, 2011, the Food and Drug Administration's Neurological Devices Panel endorsed the premarket approval application (PMA) for Novocure's NovoTTF-100A Treatment Kit - a novel, non-invasive device that blasts glioblastoma brain tumors with an electrical field.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure recently funded Dr. Karen Aboody, a pioneering stem cell researcher at the City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte, California. 

She is working on a revolutionary new cancer treatment for the very worst brain tumors called glioblastomas (GBM).  These types of tumors are so invasive that until now there's been no way to get large enough amounts of chemotherapy through the blood-brain barrier.
