"AICR is well known for funding innovative cancer research.  While all funding bodies claim similar funding priorities the reality is the larger national funding agencies are by nature more conservative and more reluctant to fund basic and translational research that is possibly higher risk but potentially greater impact.  AICR has a track record of supporting this type of cutting edge research, making it an attractive funding option for research projects such as ours to functionally assess gene mutations identified by the melanoma genome sequencing projects."
