Our Mission

The Mark Foundation for Cancer Research is dedicated to accelerating cures for cancer by integrating discoveries in biology with innovative technology.

We fund a global portfolio of groundbreaking research carried out by individual investigators, multi-investigator teams, and inter-institutional collaborations.

We maintain a nimble, high-impact approach to funding that encompasses grants for basic and translational cancer research, as well as venture philanthropy investment in companies that bridge the gap between bench and bedside.
