Our Research

The National Breast Cancer Foundation has set an aspirational goal of achieving zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030, and we believe that research provides the best hope for a future where more people survive for longer.

NBCF-funded research is helping to better understand how breast cancer originates, grows and spreads, in order to develop tests, treatments and interventions to improve outcomes for people with the disease.

We are committed to funding a broad spectrum of breast cancer research, as well as supporting psychosocial research aimed at improving the quality of life for people after breast cancer treatment, their family and friends. While some research will produce immediate results that can be applied to prevention, treatment and care, most research results will come to fruition in years to come.
