OurBrainBank is One!

A year ago this month OurBrainBank was launched in the US. Thank you for supporting us! We have record numbers of people living with GBM using our app—enhancing their quality of life and pushing research forward.
This year, we will step up our plans to advocate for faster, better treatments, learning from the HIV/AIDs movement, breast cancer campaigners, pancreatic cancer advocates, and others. Join us as we plan our campaign!
New “Shiny” enhances OBB App
Our brilliant intern Jacob Ellen designed a cool new add-on for our app which enables you to learn about your fellow GBM travelers and more. To access: open the OBB App main menu and click on "Interactive App."
Clinical Trials Survey
In February, OBB launched a survey and 162 people living with GBM or their caregivers participated. We'll publish the results soon, and plan to use the findings to help more patients get onto trials.
Strategy Meeting
In early March, patient advocates, our board, medical, and tech advisors met in NYC to brainstorm about advocacy, next steps, and a new initiative to help match GBM patients to clinical trials. Stay tuned for updates.
Your donations have made it possible for us to produce a much-wanted brochure for patient waiting rooms. The brochure explains how the app helps patients and caregivers. We'd love to send some to you to share with your medical team. Write us at to request.
