New York, NY – October 1, 2018 – The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) today announced a record-breaking $63 million commitment to fund breast cancer research for 2018-2019. The grants will support the work of 300 scientists at leading academic and medical institutions in 14 countries. BCRF-funded research spans the entire spectrum of cancer – from the most basic biology of a cancer cell to developing innovative new treatments and improving quality of life.
“This October marks 25 years of BCRF’s unwavering commitment to end breast cancer—25 years of impact, landmark breakthroughs and discoveries that have changed cancer. Twenty-five years of lives saved,” said Myra Biblowit, President & CEO of BCRF. “But while there are more than 3.5 million survivors in the U.S. today, we continue to lose 40,000 women and men to the disease each year. We remain steadfast in our commitment to save every single life from this disease.”
BCRF funds a diverse array of research across the entire spectrum of breast cancer research, including the following major impact areas:
Metastatic Breast Cancer Research
Precision-Prevention Research Initiative
Early Diagnosis and Prevention
