Cure Cancer Australia Foundation

We act as a front line source to provide vital start-up funding for innovative, ground-breaking research projects across all types of cancer.

Established in 1967, Cure Cancer Australia has developed a reputation for excellence, integrity and the encouragement of innovation in cancer research.

We have channelled over $22.5 million to close to 500 ground breaking cancer research projects nationally.

Through gaining funding from us, outstanding young Australian researchers are granted a much needed opportunity to build on their ideas and develop a platform for their life-long aspiration to find a cure for cancer.

Cure Cancer Australia has helped nurture the Australian cancer research community – many of today’s leading researchers were funded by us in the early stages of their careers, at a time when they were bursting with ideas and keen for their first funding grant to get them started.

Cure Cancer is directing $2.5 million of vital seed funding to 28 promising young researchers this year. Working across the cancer spectrum in Australia’s leading hospitals, universities and institutes, these researchers are fighting cancer through improvements in prevention, detection and treatment options.

Thanks to the generosity and support of donors, fundraisers and corporate partners we are moving closer to a world without cancer, nothing less.

Our researchers may just hold the key to a cure for cancer.
