How We’re Working to Find Cures

The American Cancer Society is the largest nongovernmental funder of cancer research in the United States, having spent more than $4 billion since 1946 to find cures. We fund both external research projects through grants and scholarships as well as conduct our own research into cancer epidemiology, surveillance, and health policy. We fund beginning researchers with cutting-edge ideas early in their careers — 47 of whom have gone on to win the Nobel Prize, the highest accolade in scientific achievement.
