We are launching a ResearcHERS campaign this year in with a goal to raise $25,000 to help women in the field of cancer research. If you are a woman who would be interested in joining this campaign to help other women, please message me and I will get you more information.

Despite worldwide efforts to support women in STEM fields like today’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a funding disparity still exists between women vs. men in first time research funding from the NIH.

The American Cancer Society is proud to be a top supporter of women in cancer research. We fund some of the world’s top women researchers who are spearheading critical research studies in cancer.

Learn more about our efforts to fund women-led research: www.acsresearchers.org

American Cancer Society - Indiana

As the largest non-government, not-for-profit funding source of cancer research in the United States, the Society is currently funding 162 research grants focused on breast cancer, an investment of more than $67 million. Dr. Michael Wendt, a researcher at Purdue University, holds one of those 162 breast cancer specific grants funded by the American Cancer Society. He was awarded a four-year Research Scholar Grant in 2017, totaling 792,000, for his work which is focused on increasing the understanding of why breast cancer tumors metastasize, and how that process alters anticancer drug targets that drastically lower survival rates. He hopes his research can lead to new targeted therapies that will reduce mortality and improve survival rates for those whose tumors have metastasized. The American Cancer Society’s research program has played a role in many of the prevention, screening and treatment advances that help save lives from breast cancer today.
