Our Research Projects

Our 2019 Research Projects

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research.

This year, we are funding world-class research projects to help further understand risk factors, develop new ways to treat and monitor breast cancer, improve quality of life for breast cancer patients, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately – save more lives.

8 women still lose their life to breast cancer every day. But with your continued support, our researchers are determined to change the breast cancer stats.

Together, we can reach our goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

  • All
  • Prevention and risk
  • Improved and new treatment
  • Quality of life
  • Detection
