Every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last three decades has been touched by Susan G. Komen for the Cure® funding. Komen for the Cure has provided more money for breast cancer research and community health programs than any entity besides the U.S. government.
A minimum of 25 percent of the net income from each domestic Affiliate, including Komen Puget Sound, supports the Komen for the Cure Research Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific conferences around the world.
Komen's Scientific Advisory Board guides our research focus, identifying the most promising areas of research and the critical questions that need to be answered. The Komen Scholars, along with members of Komen’s Advocates in Science, through a highly structured peer review process, help identify the most promising projects for funding. With the guidance of these experts, Komen invests every research dollar as carefully and conscientiously as possible.
