Generous Gift From Ivy Foundation Helps Fast Track Brain Cancer Research

Catherine Ivy

With generous support from The Ben and Catherine Ivy Foundation, the Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center at Barrow Neurological Institute has launched a revolutionary fast-track approach to brain cancer research — the first of its kind — giving new hope to brain cancer patients.

Directed by Nader Sanai, MD, the Barrow Phase 0 Clinical Trial Program, supported by a gift of $250,000 to Barrow Neurological Foundation from the Ivy Foundation, pursues multiple Phase 0 clinical trials for brain tumor patients. As the highest-volume operative brain tumor program in the United States, Barrow is ideally suited to conduct multiple trials while developing and testing new drugs — this gift assists in making that possible.
