Research Impact

Individuals and organizations who have received research grants from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation are working to:

  • Better understand the environmental, lifestyle and genetic links to breast cancer including why the disease occurs, and how the risk of developing breast cancer might be reduced.

  • Improve diagnostic techniques and better support women at the time of diagnosis.

  • Promote participation in breast screening through regular mammograms and reduce barriers to screening with the goal of having more eligible women participate in organized screening programs.

  • Develop more effective treatments that respond to individual needs.

  • Explore learning opportunities that will improve the quality of tomorrow’s breast cancer care clinicians and support specialized areas of practice.

  • Ease the burden of breast cancer by exploring how the disease affects people’s lives and how their needs can be better met.

  • Better understand the biology of breast cancer: how it develops, grows and spreads and what can be done to counter the natural progression of the disease.​
