Our philosophy is very simple: if we believe a project can make a difference in the fight against cancer then we will award a grant to make it happen. We’re not interested in national borders or any kind of geographical bias, just the most promising proposals. And that’s the very reason we ask the brightest and best scientists from around the world to bring their research projects to us.
It’s crucial to remember that cancer is not one disease – it’s more than 200. All different, unique diseases, which require different approaches for treatment. Treatments that work for some cancers don’t work for others and sometimes those treatments simply stop working.
Only worldwide research will enhance our understanding of cancer and help us find and develop better, more effective treatments. And only a global search for answers will help us get to grips with this disease.
