RESEARCHKomen’s Mission is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. Our research investments are guided by more than 60 leading scientists and advocates, including our Scientific Advisory Board and Komen Scholars. We fund the brightest minds and the best breast cancer research – research that has the potential to reduce breast cancer deaths within the decade. Our research program is also patient-focused, with patient advocates involved in all aspects of the research process.
ADVOCACYSusan G. Komen has a history of more than 30 years in public policy and advocacy. In order to achieve our mission, we believe that scientific progress and community programming must be complemented by sound public policy and advocacy. Through government action, broad, systemic, lasting change can be made in the fight against breast cancer.
To advance our public policy and advocacy priorities, Komen works with our volunteers, researchers, partners and friends in communities across the United States, to ensure breast cancer is a priority among policymakers at the federal, state and local levels and to increase access to affordable, high-quality breast health and cancer care services.
