AACR Receives Gift for Translational Breast Cancer Research

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has announced a $200,000 gift from the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) which will create the BCRF-AACR Fund for Translational Breast Cancer Research.
The gift was announced at a Breast Cancer Research Foundation research symposium, and will be supplemented with a matching grant from the AACR Foundation for the Prevention and Cure of Cancer to create a $400,000 research grant fund for translational breast cancer research. Translational research is defined as a “two-way bridge” that conveys new ideas and discoveries between the laboratory and the clinic, bringing the benefits of basic science knowledge to patients quicker and more effectively. Grants in the amount of $200,000 will be awarded to cancer researchers through AACR’s scientific review process beginning in 2007.
