The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation (FBCF) strives to fund breast cancer research projects that have the potential to make a significant impact on breast cancer, particularly in multidisciplinary and/or multi-institutional collaborations. The FBCF believes that collaborative research is the path to making extraordinary leaps in the future of breast cancer, and by working together, we can make a difference in the breast cancer landscape.  

2019 Priority Areas

This year’s designated Scientific Research Grant themes are:

  • Basic, clinical, and translational breast cancer research.
  • Understanding the links between environmental factors and breast cancer in Florida.
  • Novel epidemiological studies to provide insight on opportunities for improving breast cancer detection and treatment in Florida.
  • Psycho-immunologic mechanisms and breast cancer progression: implications for improving outcomes.
  • Innovative awards and idea grants.

As we strive to end the suffering caused by breast cancer, FBCF will continue to fund research that will reduce mortality rates, decrease chances of metastatis or relapse, improve current treatments, as well as provide pathways to discovering new therapies.
