Areas of Investment - Research
The Alberta Cancer Foundation invests more than $15 million annually in cancer research to drive progress, reduce the incidence of cancer and make an impact here in Alberta. Because of research 600 people survive cancer in Alberta today that would not have survived 25 years ago.
Our collaborative approach to research brings together patients, families, researchers, health providers and donors. With the patients always top of mind, we invest in research projects that make a difference for Albertans facing cancer. This bold new approach will ultimately lead to:
- Improved understanding of cancer risk factors
- Earlier diagnosis
- Improved interventions and treatments
- Improved quality of life during treatment and after care
- Reductions in the recurrence of cancer
