Your dollar counts. Did you know most research foundations invest only a small percentage into actual research? 90% of WCRF donations go directly to research.

Women’s Cancer Research Foundation (WCRF) congratulates Dr. James P. Allison and Dr. Tasuku Honjo for winning the 2018 Nobel Prize in Medicine!

WCRF is a leading clinical research site for new immunotherapy treatments for gynecologic cancers. 

We therefore deeply appreciate their research contribution developing new drugs targeting the CTLA-4 on T cells and programmed death receptor 1 or PD-1 protein.

Keytruda, Opdivo and other drugs have progressed through clinical trials and are now widely available. Dr. Honjo noted that cancer treatment is still ‘a work in progress’.

WCRF shares their excitement about immunotherapy and has a full slate of amazing new immunotherapy treatments under investigation.
