Empowers

Break Through Cancer is committed to reducing the day-to-day barriers to cross-institutional collaboration such as contract negotiations, data sharing, intellectual property, and authorship policies.

Outstanding Researchers and Physicians

Break Through Cancer is focused on several of of the world’s deadliest cancers. These are diseases with poor prognoses for which progress has been very slow.

Radicalcollaboration

Radical collaboration is the expectation of all Break Through Cancer researchers, physicians, and other partners. Radical collaboration requires sharing discoveries and data in real time, a trust and willingness to critique each other’s ideas, and a sense of urgency knowing that lives are at stake.

“When we act together we have the potential to be an unstoppable force. There is nothing that will build momentum and progress faster.”
