Our charity funds high-quality research projects that fall into four distinct pillars:

Investigating how differences and mutations in someone’s genes can increase their chances of getting breast cancer in the future.
Identifying new and unique screening methods to ensure early and accurate diagnoses.
Investigating drugs that can be used as a preventative measure to reduce a person’s risk of developing breast cancer.
Research into lifestyle factors that contribute to risk and how diet and exercise can reduce an individual’s risk.
Applying for a Research Grant
We have two rounds of grant applications per year with deadlines in June and December. Grant applications are assessed internally by our Scientific Advisory Board before being sent out to external review. When reviews are received they are sent to our Board of Trustees for the final decision. Prevent Breast Cancer never funds projects involving animals.
