In 2017 NBCF has committed over $12 million to fund more than 30 breast cancer research projects that will contribute towards our goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
This year we have continued to fund innovative projects that investigate new avenues for treatment, and new applications for existing treatments to improve outcomes for breast cancer patients. The researchers will explore promising areas of investigation, some of which include more effective immunotherapies for hard to treat breast cancers, targeted treatment delivery systems, and predictive tests for relapsing cancer.
In total, since 1994, NBCF has awarded more than $140 million to around 479 Australian-based research projects to improve the health and well-being of those affected by breast cancer. During that time the 5-year survival for breast cancer has improved from 76% to 90%.
