WHO WE ARE

FOUNDED FROM PASSION AND NEED
In 1993, California breast cancer activists joined forces with scientists, healthcare professionals, and state legislators to win passage of legislation that
created the California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP).

The mission of the CBCRP is to eliminate breast cancer by leading innovation in research, communication, and collaboration in the California scientific and lay communities.

The California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP) is administered by the University of California, Office of the President. All donations are tax deductible.

SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE

SUPPORTING NEW IDEAS AND PUSHING BOUNDARIES
We fund high-quality research for greater impact—studies that challenge existing beliefs, look in new directions, or incorporate new techniques or approaches, such as:

We’re leading a coordinated, statewide effort to examine:

TRAINING FOR THE FUTURE
We support young researchers while they finish their training under a mentor’s supervision. Their talent and imagination lead us down creative paths of investigation.

SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY
We seek the best science that will lead to progress in eliminating breast cancer. We have built a nationally recognized peer review system with expert scientific and advocate reviewers from around the country and fair but rigorous standards for judging scientific excellence and innovation.

COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY

INVOLVING ADVOCATES AND COMMUNITIES
The CBCRP was created from the energy, wisdom, and dreams of the women and men affected by breast cancer.

Honoring that vision, advocates are involved at every level of our program. Their participation reminds us that breakthroughs are not meant to languish in scientific journals, but instead should be leveraged into practical use and greater impact against the disease.

ADVANCING RESEARCH THROUGH COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP
We help communities collaborate with experienced investigators and actively participate in research about issues that concern them. Previous collaborations have resulted in:

INFORMING THE PUBLIC
We announce our progress, solicit feedback, and encourage public involvement through publications, meetings, and our website. We make sure that our research results can be understood by a wider audience, so that the answers can be translated quickly into the hands of the people who need them.
