How we operate

The Association for International Cancer Research has 2 main activities. The first is raising the money that is used to fund innovative research projects worldwide. In order to do this, we carry out a wide variety of work.

Our sources include face-to-face, prizedraws and raffles, legacies, trust funds and sponsorship as well as innovative, targeted direct mail and online programmes. As we receive no funding from government or statutory bodies, it is vital that we continue to extend all of these programmes.

Our second activity is the processing of research applications and the administration of grants. Once a project has been selected for funding by our independent Scientific Advisory Committee, we have systems in place that ensure that the scientists involved use the award money in precisely the way it was intended. Also, as the projects are underway, we receive reports detailing the progress being made, before a final paper is written at the conclusion of every project.

If you would like to help us in our fight to conquer cancer, please consider making a donation.

"Without the generous support of AICR I would not have been able to continue my research in this particular project, which has proven to be very exciting and has potential benefits that will make a difference to patients."
