Friends of Cancer Research is our country’s leading voice in advocating for policies and solutions that will get treatments to patients in the safest and quickest way possible.
Friends of Cancer Research (Friends) develops groundbreaking partnerships and creates a more open dialogue among both public and private sectors and tears down the barriers that stand in the way of conquering cancer. By collaborating with premier academic research centers, professional societies, and other advocacy organizations, Friends is able to accelerate innovation.
We work closely with government agencies (FDA, NCI, NIH, HHS) and congressional leadership to create educational, policy, and scientific approaches to improve health outcomes and cancer care. As a respected independent think tank and advocacy organization, Friends is able to cut through bureaucratic red tape, put aside partisan politics, and engage all stakeholders, producing real results.
We have made great strides in the fight against cancer but challenges still exist:
Imagine what discoveries could be made and the lives that could be saved if more grants were funded, if the barriers between discovering new treatments and getting them to a patient’s bedside were overcome.
We are working every day to make new treatments a reality for patients everywhere.
