Cancer Research Supported 2017

Can Too Foundation believes in funding research across all cancer types, including rare cancers. We support early-career cancer research grants and major cancer research projects for one year at a time, with a commitment to continue providing support in future years for multi-year grants and projects.

A single cancer research grant may work across multiple research areas, for multiple years. The summary indicates individual years of support provided by Can Too for each cancer research type, where a single cancer research grant or major cancer research project may be reflected in multiple categories.

Cancer Researchers Supported 2017

At the start of each calendar year the Can Too Foundation invests in Australia’s brightest and best cancer researchers for the coming twelve months. Can Too relies on expert guidance of bodies such as the National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC), and the rigorous funding assessment processes by major beneficiary Cure Cancer Australia, and the Cancer Council NSW. Through continuing community collaboration we deliver on our vision to “improve health and wellbeing in the community and supporting the research, prevention, care and control of cancer.”
