The CARE Fund sets the stage for novel research efforts that can generate or accelerate the next big discovery in cancer research. 

The Breakthrough Research Program seeks to provide seed funding for innovative, cross-disciplinary research and collaborations that aim to find the next big discovery in cancer research. While individual research group proposals will be considered, we believe that research environments that foster communication and collaboration across research teams, disciplines, institutions, and sectors have a higher likelihood of transformational breakthroughs that will have a tremendous impact in the cancer research field in Washington and beyond. CARE intends to match contributions of research groups, partnerships, or collaborations aimed at solving critical challenges in cancer research, allowing them to more rapidly pursue their best ideas.
