Patients who are diagnosed with a brain tumour are now living 200% longer, and with better quality of life, than they were just ten years ago.
The Brain Tumour Program at The Neuro is one of the largest and most comprehensive brain tumour research and treatment programs in the country.
The goal of the Brain Tumour Research Centre is to develop and fund translational research to identify new, promising agents and strategies in the laboratory and to ensure that they are brought quickly to the patients who need them.
Malignant gliomas are the most common primary brain cancers and are among the most devastating. One of the main reasons that these cancers are so difficult to treat is because the cancer cells are extremely invasive, spreading throughout the normal brain tissue.
The TARGiT (The Animal Resource for Glioma Therapy) Program, under the leadership of Chief of Neurosurgery, Dr. Kevin Petrecca, is developing new models for brain tumour research to equip our researchers to discover new therapeutics to treat patients.
The Neuro, is developing a ‘next generation’ brain cancer treatment program that individualizes each patient. Known as precision medicine, this treatment approach for brain cancer allows doctors to tailor treatment to patients' biological characteristics.
The Neuro is now using state-of-the-art bioinformatics to help figure out why normal stem cells first become cancer stem cells. In doing this, we will revolutionize the way brain cancer is treated.
Through an educational, emotional and sensorial experience, A BRILLIANT NIGHT’s mission is to educate and raise awareness for brain cancer and the importance of its research at The Neuro.
In the first two years A BRILLIANT NIGHT raised $1.6 M net, 100% of which was donated to research at The Neuro.
Making up the 650 guests who attend A BRILLIANT NIGHT are young professionals from early 30’s to established business people in their mid 50’s.
A BRILLIANT NIGHT 2015 won Gold in the CASE District 1 Excellence Awards for philanthropy through special events.
Over $245,000 in gifts and services in kind were donated to A BRILLIANT NIGHT, contributing to the cocktail dinatoire culinary experience, the impressive silent auction and exciting gift bags.
Through impressive interactive and immersive installations guests gained a heightened sense of awe, inspiration and affinity to brain cancer research and The Neuro.
An affiliation with A BRILLIANT NIGHT lends credibility and good will to our partners.
A BRILLIANT NIGHT is being touted as the new “don’t miss” philanthropic event.
