Since awarding its very first research grant more than 25 years ago, AICR has committed itself to making a difference in the study of cancer. We have kept that commitment by funding researchers at leading universities, hospitals and cancer centers throughout the US and abroad.
We fund research about the effects of dietary and nutritional factors on the etiology pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of cancer.
Specifics of the AICR grant program, and how to apply.
Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective (released November 2007) is the largest study of its kind ever published and its recommendations are based on the most up-to-date research available.
Policy and Action for Cancer Prevention (released February 2009), the companion document to our Expert Report, examines the factors that influence behaviors associated with cancer risk and provides comprehensive recommendations for government, industry, and others.
SCIENTIST IN THE SPOTLIGHT
With a background in exercise physiology, John M. Saxton, a faculty member at the Centre for Sport and Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam University, is exploring how exercise and lifestyle interventions can promote improvements in quality of life for cancer survivors.
