Annual lists of funded projects

The foundation Swiss Cancer Research funds research projects from all aspects and methodologies. The most promising projects are identified by the the Scientific Committee.

The Swiss Cancer Research foundation works closely with its partner organization, the Swiss Cancer League, in the area of research funding. Twice a year, they jointly award funds to selected research projects. The research projects are awarded on the recommendation of the Scientific Committee.
