Background:

National BrainTumor Society is the largest non-profit organization in the U.S. solely dedicated to the global brain tumor community. We are iercely committed to our mission of finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for brain tumors. We’ve seen unprecedented progress and momentum to find better treatments. This  is  an  exciting  and  deeply satisfying  time to be part of our agenda for change and a strong, caring community. For over twenty-five years, dating back to the origins of our organization, we have been a strategic funder, advocate, and catalyst for advancing research, improving public policies, and helping all those diagnosed today and anyone who is diagnosed in the future. Some of the most important discoveries in brain tumor research have been attributable at least in part to NBTS, and over the past six years NBTS has achieved a number of victories on the public-policy front that in turn improved the landscape for research to advance. Going forward, NBTS aims to achieve even greater impact toward the goal of delivering medicines to patients who deserve far greater survival and quality of life than they are currently experiencing from time of diagnosis. Organizationally, we have a highly collaborative workplace and believe that teamwork and a great culture are essential to success.
