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. Since 1967, we have channeled over $15 million in the form of funding grants to national young researchers and have come to stand for integrity, excellence, and success in research.

Through gaining funding from Cure Cancer Australia, our brilliant 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.

In 2011 , Cure Cancer is directing $1.8million of vital seed funding to 21 promising young researchers. These researchers work across the cancer spectrum in Australia’s leading hospitals, universities and institutes. Nine of these research grants are in collaboration with other cancer funding bodies and an additional six are in conjunction with Cancer Australia. This collaboration reduces duplication and the number of applications researchers need to submit.

Untold thousands of lives have been saved around the world as a consequence of the knowledge gained and the treatments developed from Cure Cancer Australia's funded research projects. Our researchers may just hold the key to a cure for cancer.
