About Tower Cancer Research Foundation
TCRF is a non-profit organization formed in 1996 that is dedicated to funding more effective treatments to prevent, treat, and to one day, cure cancer. They support clinical trials which offer expanded treatment options to patients with limited alternatives. In addition to our clinical research program, they support free patient support and education programs that works with the community suffering from the effects of cancer.
Tower Cancer Research Foundation also awards annual research grants to support physician scientists following careers in academic medicine focusing on a bench-to-bedside approach. With the current shortage of federal funding, these funds are much needed to support the future of cancer research. This year, TCRF is awarding three $100,000 research grants to distinguished PhD students in cancer studies at the Gala.
