FUNDING RESEARCH

Join us as we lead the fight for a world without cancer.

CANCER RESEARCH

Funds raised will provide needed support for the most promising cancer research locally and beyond. Since 1946, the American Cancer Society has invested more than $4.5 billion in cancer research and has played a critical role in almost every major cancer research breakthrough.

Locally, the American Cancer Society is currently investing more than $11.2 million in researchers based at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle Children’s, and the University of Washington. At the national level, we are investing over $406 million to fund scientists and medical professionals whose life-saving research is conducted at medical schools, universities, research institutes, and hospitals across the United States.

As the nation’s largest private, non-profit source of funds for cancer research, we ensure research dollars go to the best science in the U.S. through an extensive peer-review process. We invest in the best research which will make critical advances in prevention, early detection, treatment, and care for those with cancer. This research funding strategy has helped support numerous important discoveries from some of the brightest researchers, including 47 Nobel Prize winners to date.
