Rosenbaum GBM Research Fund
The purpose of the Rosenbaum GBM Research Fund is to support the research of innovative researchers and institutions specifically for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive type of brain tumor. In particular, the fund will support clinical trials of promising treatments directly involving GBM patients or translational research that will lead to treatments expected to significantly extend the overall survival of GBM patients.
The fund is under the auspices of the Musella Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for brain tumors. All donations are tax deductible. The Musella Foundation does not take out any of your donation for overhead expenses, so 100% of the money donated to this fund will go to research or clinical trials for GBM brain tumors.
Our initial goal is to raise $100,000 to fund a clinical trial of a novel immuno/gene therapy for recurrent GBM. Dr. Hideho Okada, MD, PhD, of the University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center has collaborated with Dr. Carl June, MD, of the University of Pennsylvania to apply Dr. June's groundbreaking therapy for chronic lymphocytic leukemia to GBM (www.nytimes.com/2011/09/13/health/13gene.html
