What We Do
Funding Innovative Science
The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation believes that collaboration is the most critical means to bring advances from science more rapidly. We fund innovative research to bring faster cures to patients.
Our funded-investigators become members of the Foundation's Institute Without Walls, who share resources and tools to bring faster cures to patients.
Our commitment has resulted in major breakthroughs—from discovering pathways to deliver drugs to identifying potential novel therapeutics. Grants to Foundation-funded scientists often leverage additional funding from major cancer organizations, such as the National Cancer Institute.
In addition to supporting ongoing collaborative research in specific cancers, our scientists are investigating the biology of cancer to find treatments across disease types.
The world-class group of scientists who represent our Institute Without Walls share information and resources to speed the pace of cancer research.
Foundation-funded investigators have made major breakthroughs in cancer—from discovering pathways to deliver drugs to identifying potential minimally toxic and novel therapies.
