Cancer Research Foundation - Chicago Chapter

The Cancer Research Foundation's mission is to raise funds to fund early-career cancer scientists and new directions in cancer science research with the goal of contributing to "Transformational Events" in the prevention, treatment and cure for cancer. Tax ID 81-2771469


Throughout its history, the Cancer Research Foundation has made a point of taking "long-shot" bets with relatively small amounts of grant money, leveraging the collective knowledge and experience of the Foundation, its allies, and its past grantees to make grants that increase scientific knowledge more than an average grant of the same size. We view ourselves as "cancer research venture capitalists," making early investments in ideas that are often difficult to fund through more traditional sources.
