CALL FOR APPLICANTS
Short-term contract for Healthcare Sector Business Plan Development
OurBrainBank is an innovative, patient-led movement designed to move glioblastoma from terminal to treatable, powered by patients. It’s the first non-profit created by, for, and with people with GBM, a rare and deadly brain cancer. 15,000 people are diagnosed with GBM in the US each year; the 5-year survival rate is 5%. Our key tool is a study that patients or carers join by using our free mobile device app. The app enables people to track their symptoms and treatments.
In less than 2 years, we have 570+ people using the app and have collected 11,000+ data points. The app is available in the US and UK, we’re working on further global expansion.
Less than 10% of GBM patients enroll in clinical trials, while more than 95% believe that trial enrollment would enhance wellbeing and longevity. In order to close this gap, we want to establish a new OBB venture — a human centered clinical trial matching service — OBB Empower.
OBB Empower will provide GBM patients with nurse navigators who will collect their medical records and data, and match them to a set of clinical trials. The service will be free of charge to patients or carers.
To establish a hybrid feasibility study and business plan for OBB Empower.
