AFCR’s Women in Cancer Research program aims to recognize female researchers’ scientific achievements and support women-led enterprises in the oncology field. It does so by providing critical research grants, unique exposure-generating opportunities and access to an extensive network of cancer experts and industry leaders. Our goal is to bolster the work of women cancer scientists, research-physicians and entrepreneurs, and help them make scientific innovation a reality.
