Together, we can achieve so much more

Cooperation with foundations

Research brings new insights and improves the situation of people with cancer. Let us join forces and together enable more progress.

Swiss Cancer Research supports research projects of very different orientation and methodology: from basic research to clinical and epidemiological research to psychosocial research. All projects aim to improve the survival rates and the quality of life for cancer patients. Together, we are finding cures faster.

To reach our goal more quickly, we collaborate closely with other foundations that share our vision. We refer research projects to foundations or invite them to contribute partial funding to projects. Through the careful evaluation of our research projects by independent and scientifically recognized experts, we ensure that their money is well invested.
