Systems biology: new approach, new possibilities
In 2010, the National Brain Tumor Society launched the $5 million Mary Catherine Calisto Systems Biology Initiative. We believe this marks a critical turning point for brain tumor research. Systems biology holds promise to usher in a new era in which effective treatments for brain tumors are developed as quickly as possible.
The $5 Million Mary Catherine Calisto Systems Biology Initiative is the largest singular research initiative NBTS or its legacy organizations have ever undertaken. By embracing systems biology, NBTS is leading brain tumor research in a powerful new direction. The generous support of the community, as well as partnerships between experts in the field and leading research institutions, will be required to make this Initiative a reality. There are a number of special donor opportunities for contributing that underscore a donor’s strong personal commitment to finding effective treatments and improving the quality of life for those suffering with brain tumors.
A gift to the Mary Catherine Calisto Systems Biology Initiative will allow NBTS to fund discoveries and develop effective treatments faster than ever before.
