What Does it Take to Outsmart Cancer? Research.
The American Cancer Society has invested more than $5 billion in cancer research since 1946, all to find more ? and better ? treatments, uncover factors that may cause cancer, and improve cancer patients' quality of life.
Our grants fund high impact and innovative cancer research conducted by hundreds of promising scientists and health care professionals primarily early in their careers at institutions across the United States.
We are committed to maintaining a broad cancer research portfolio- any type of cancer and within any part of the cancer research continuum.
In Colorado, ACS is currently funding 16 cancer research grants totaling $9.4 million in our state alone.
