Ben and Catherine Ivy Foundation Grants Funds to Barrow Neurological Institute for Brain Cancer Research The Ben & Catherine Ivy Foundation (Ivy Foundation) has awarded an $885,294 grant to Barrow Neurological Institute (Barrow) for brain cancer research. The Ivy Foundation is the largest privately funded brain cancer research foundation in North America. Catherine Ivy, a Phoenix native, is the founder and president of the Ivy Foundation, which has a research funding focus on glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common and deadliest of malignant primary brain tumors in adults. With support from the Ben & Catherine Ivy Foundation, they can take the steps necessary to develop and test this strategy in newly diagnosed glioblastoma patients. Their hope is that it will not only be a relatively safe strategy, but one that starkly impacts the ability of glioblastomas to recur or move beyond its site of origin in newly diagnosed patients.
