ABOUT THE Foundation

Since 1993, the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology Foundation - a nonprofit, tax-exempt foundation - has raised funds to help the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology answer important treatment questions through large-scale clinical trials. Through efforts of the Foundation in support of Alliance clinical trials and laboratory research, donors can help find new ways to prevent, treat and cure many types of cancer, and help educate the medical community on methods of cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

Here are some recent initiatives supported by the Foundation:

  • New chemotherapy treatments for breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancer.
  • New surgical techniques for breast and colon cancer.
  • Genetic studies of breast cancer risk.
  • Molecular determinants of response to therapy for breast, colorectal and lung cancers, and leukemia.
  • Research that improves the quality of life for cancer patients and their caregivers.
