Cancer Research Society
Founded in 1945, the Cancer Research Society is a national not-for-profit organization whose sole mission is to fund research on all types of cancer, thereby contributing to the advancement of science aimed at preventing, detecting, and treating this disease. The Society primarily supports basic research, which has resulted in several innovative discoveries. It also finances projects in environment-cancer, a field in which the Society is considered to have played a pioneering role in Canada. In addition, through its Next Generation of Scientists program, the Society provides young researchers with the opportunity to pursue their careers in Canada. This unique and innovative funding initiative serves to prevent an exodus of our best scientific minds.
