Federal Funding For Cancer Research

As an organization that has funded more than $1.2 billion in cancer research, LLS knows firsthand the importance of funding research in order to one day achieve a world without blood cancers. The federal government is the largest funder of cancer research in the world, which is why LLS supports bolstering these funding resources.

To support this work, LLS advocates for robust federal investments for:

  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Cancer Institute (NCI) to advance efforts to improve cancer detection, diagnosis, and survivorship
  • The Department of Defense’s Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program’s (CDMRP) Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program (PRCRP), which provides important resources for innovative blood cancer research to support U.S. Service members, their families, and the public.
