The National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) was founded in 1973 to support cancer research and public education relating to the prevention, early diagnosis, better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for cancer. NFCR promotes and facilitates collaboration among scientists to accelerate the pace of discovery from bench to bedside. NFCR is committed to Research for a Cure – cures for all types of cancer.
In order to fully conquer this devastating disease, we fund scientists and laboratories worldwide to study cancer at its most fundamental level. Currently, our projects include improving cancer prevention strategies, developing early-detection tools and advancing targeted cancer therapies.
Our work would not be possible without the support of millions of individual donors across the United States and around the world. With continued support, we will continue to foster collaboration amongst scientists around the world and across disciplines; provide seed funding and flexibility for innovative ideas and research; and maintain our long-term vision and commitment to cancer research.
We envision a future without the specter of cancer. We will not stop until we find a cure for all types of cancer. Join us today and help us win.
