Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) was founded in 1984 by the late Sir Peter Abeles and the late Lady Sonia McMahon. Thanks to their generous supporters, ACRF has awarded 73 grants totalling $153.2 million to world-class Australian research initiatives.
There has been great progress in research into many cancers in the last few years; however, more funds are needed to ensure that researchers have the latest and most sophisticated equipment they need to help end cancer.
The donations received go to research with the power to outsmart cancer. Their esteemed Medical Research Advisory Committee ensures that only the most promising cancer research initiatives in Australia receive our funding.
