Global Network


Since awarding its very first research grant more than 25 years ago, AICR has committed itself to making a difference in the study of cancer. We have kept that commitment by funding researchers at leading universities, hospitals and cancer centers throughout the US and abroad.

We fund research about the effects of dietary and nutritional factors on the etiology pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of cancer.
