National Foundation for Cancer Research

The National Foundation for Cancer Research is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides scientists in the lab the funding they need to make game-changing discoveries in cancer treatments, detection, prevention and ultimately, a cure. NFCR has distinguished itself from other organizations by emphasizing long-term, transformative research that is overlooked by other major funding sources. With the help of more than 5.2 million individual donors over the last 44 years, NFCR has delivered more than $350 million in funding to public education and cancer research leading to several important, life-saving discoveries. One of NFCR's signature events if the Annual Szent-Györgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research, established by NFCR and named in honor of Albert Szent-Györgyi, M.D., Ph.D., Nobel Laureate and the co-founder of NFCR. The Prize is awarded to outstanding researchers whose scientific achievements have expanded our understanding of cancer and whose vision has moved cancer research in new directions. The Annual Szent-Györgyi Prize honors researchers whose discoveries have made possible new approaches to preventing, diagnosing and/or treating cancer. In March 2007, NFCR became full UICC member.
