American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
The overall goal of the CRN, and the NCI initiative under which it was funded, is to use this consortium of delivery systems to conduct research on cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, long-term care and surveillance. A portfolio of research studies encompasses cancer control topics ranging from modification of behavioral risk factors such as smoking to cancer care at the end of life.
CRN Special Interest Groups
Scientific Interest Groups (SIGs) are initiated and led by investigators with shared interests in emerging areas of high-priority research. The purpose of SIGs is to offer a venue for investigators to discuss shared interests and provide space to develop opportunities. A SIG is a forum for investigators to identify new ideas and partners.
Center for Health Education Dissemination and
The vision for the Center for Health Education Dissemination and Implementation Research (CHEDIR) is to advance the field of dissemination and implementation research and to offer concrete assistance to narrow the gap between health research, practice and policy. We will do this by partnership and offering tools and technical assistance at the planning, implementation, evaluation, and reporting stages for interventions.
HMO Research Network
The HMO Research Network is an organization of HMO research programs whose mission is to use our collective scientific capabilities to integrate research and practice for the improvement of health and health care among diverse populations.
Lance Armstrong Foundation
At the Lance Armstrong Foundation, we unite people to fight cancer believing that unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything.
Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. That concern for others continued even as Susan neared the end of her fight. Moved by Susan's compassion for others and committed to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
That promise is now Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, having invested more than $1 billion since inception in 1982. As the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we're working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, we have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
Cancer Communication Funding
One purpose of the CRN Cancer Communication Research Center is to help researchers and practitioners who are interested in conducting research about cancer communication to identify funding opportunities.
A number of funding opportunities are available depending on the purpose, focus, and scale of the research question. The following list summarizes several opportunities that researchers and practitioners might consider when planning to apply for funding.
