Join us for the annual Minds Matter Benefit, celebrating brilliant minds on Friday, May 20 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. This event will support the Lou and Jean Malnati Brain Tumor Institute of Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, one of the world’s leading centers for brain tumor research.

Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available now. Attendees have the option to reserve a seat through both Northwestern University and Northwestern Memorial Foundation. Thank you for your willingness to support the work of the MBTI!


May is National Brain Tumor Awareness Month. Nearly 87,000 new cases of primary brain tumors were diagnosed in 2019, and almost 700,000 people are living with a brain or spinal tumor today.

People affected by these cancers face challenging new realities every day. The distinguished physician-scientists at Malnati Brain Tumor Institute are at the forefront of developing and implementing better treatments for each of them. Your gift will help us continue this life-changing work.
