Finding treatments and cures for all forms of cancer

Our mission is to continue to find treatments and cures for all forms of cancer, utilizing the unique benefits Israel and its scientists have to offer. The results of the research have a significant impact in Toronto, across Canada and throughout the world.

ICRF has funded two Nobel laureates and many other distinguished scientists working in Israeli hospitals, universities and other research institutions.

Israel Cancer Research Fund has over 45 years of history fighting cancer, and we anticipate continued success along the road to the cures. With the valuable assistance of ICRF-funded scientists and our international family of friends, we feel confident that those cures will come from Israel.
