Mission Statement

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2) believes that a nimble, focused and aggressive entrepreneurial model will increase the number of therapies discovered and then enable those therapies to be more rapidly driven into the clinic. We provide researchers with the pivotal support they need to make critical breakthroughs. We fund novel translational research aimed at finding the fastest possible route to a cure.

ABC2's partners range from medical research centers to early-stage biotechnology companies to large multi-national pharmaceutical companies. These partners all share a vision of driving translational research and moving treatments as fast as possible from basic discovery to the clinic. Since brain cancer affects a relatively small portion of the population, ABC2 recognizes the importance of investing in the early stages of the most novel sectors of the discovery and development pipeline in order to "buy down the risk" for our partners and speed progress of innovative new treatments to the clinic.

Description

ABC2 invests in each stage of the therapeutic development pipeline. Our Pre-Clincial Screening Program breaks down barriers to entry, our Research Grants focuses on novel therapies, and our collaborations with industry allows us to bring the most promising treatments to patients quickly.
Since its founding in 2001, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2) has awarded over $13 million to fund brain cancer research.
