Cure GBM Fund

This is a special fund ran by Cure Glioblastoma in partnership with the Musella Foundation. Cure Glioblastoma is a newly incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit research organization based in Los Angeles with a primary mission of building brain cancer cures.

Cure Glioblastoma was co-founded by Dr. Shawn Carbonell, MD, PhD and Barbie Blank. Dr. Carbonell has been investigating brain cancer for over 20 years in academia, clinical neurosurgery, and industry and serves as Director and President. Ms. Blank is an entrepreneur, influencer, and former WWE Superstar Wrestler and serves on the Board. Her father passed in 2018 of glioblastoma just 2 months after diagnosis.

As an independent, physician-scientist-led research organization, all science and initiatives are internally-driven and we aim to move as fast as possible to help today's patients currently suffering from brain cancer and actively invest in solutions for tomorrow's patients.

Cure Glioblastoma is launching four major programs: 1) raising awareness, 2) curating resources, 3) building cures, and 4) tactical investing. The Cure GBM Fund will be focused specifically on the last program.

We seek to invest in entrepreneurs and early stage startups focused on developing disruptive technologies to tackle brain cancer. Any future equity will be shared equally between Cure Glioblastoma and the Musella Foundation. In addition to financing, we will provide ongoing support through our mutual networks and Dr. Carbonell will provide direct advisory support based on his decade-long experience leading the development a new glioblastoma drug from idea to bench to clinical trials at his prior biotech startup, OncoSynergy. Finally, we will also provide discretionary scholarships and travel awards to students and trainees working towards translational neuro-oncology through this fund.

Our goal is to fund 2 startups and several trainees in 2020.
