A Message from Catherine Ivy

The Ivy Foundation has the long-term, ultimate goal to cure brain cancer. To that end, we fund cutting-edge research that will improve diagnostics and treatment options for patients with brain cancer. Since 2005, we’ve committed more than $91 million to brain tumor research, with the expectation that this will lead to an eventual cure. We are dedicated to this effort because funding leads to answers, and answers lead to hope.

Ivy Neurological Sciences Internship Program at TGen prepares student-scientists for the next phase of their careers.
