The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation is an international organization dedicated to curing and preventing cancer. The Foundation is a pioneer in cancer research, focusing on uncovering the causes of cancer and reprogramming cancer cells. SWCRF is dedicated to delivering tailored, minimally toxic treatments to patients. Their mission is to eradicate cancer by bridging the gap between lab science and the patient. Through a collaborative group of world-class scientists, the Institute Without Walls, investigators share information and tools to speed the pace of cancer research. Since its inception in 1976, the Foundation has awarded more than $75 million to support the work of more than 175 researchers across the globe.
Imagine a world in which cancer can be treated without disrupting life, can be cured or can even be prevented.
