Some of the topics we can assist with include:
For medical questions, we encourage you to review our information with your doctor.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) has partnered with the Simone Charitable Foundation to stimulate cancer research in Arizona. This investment in Arizona researchers will increase knowledge, collaboration, and further progress in our efforts to answer cancers biggest questions. This partnership is part of a larger effort to increase geographic diversity in cancer research.
Discovery Boost Grants (DBG) support high-risk, high-reward exploratory cancer research across the research continuum. Investigators may focus on developing research methodologies, establishing feasibility, or leading pilot tests.
