Findings of OurBrainBank's pilot study published
Neuro-Oncology Practice published "Pilot study of smartphone-based health outcome tracking (OurBrainBank) for glioblastoma patients." 

Our Brain Bank founder Jessica Morris (1963-2021) was one of the authors along with Board member Kelli Duprey, Advisors Dr. Lakshmi Nayak and Bruce Hellman, volunteer Jacob Ellen, and Dr. Florien Boele, a researcher who helped us get ethics approval for our study in the UK.

Next Steps for OurBrainBank
In 2018, OurBrainBank launched its pilot glioblastoma study using a free smartphone app that patients or care partners used to track health indicators. The success of the pilot study demonstrated that people living with GBM would contribute health data to a central database using mobile technology. 

In 2021, OurBrainBank will close the pilot study and develop OurBrainBank 2.0 using new technologies to continue to harness the power of patients.

We are now poised to expand to full-scale implementation — sustaining and expanding OBB partnerships with academics, researchers, clinicians, people living with GBM, and fellow advocates.

Our goal: gather patient-reported outcomes that will empower patients and advance research and advocacy.

We thank everyone who helped make our pilot study a success and look forward to new and exciting developments.
