About Us

Australian Breast Cancer Research is dedicated to supporting medical research focused on the prevention, detection, management and treatment of breast cancer.

Our Mission

Our mission is to reduce the impact breast cancer has on Australian families. With 1 in 7 women diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, it is still one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Australia.

Thanks to the generosity of the community, we can support both clinical and laboratory-based research at hospitals and research institutes in South Australia.

We invest in world-class research that is translational in nature, meaning discoveries made in the lab are converted as quickly as possible into therapies that help people living with breast cancer.

When you give to Australian Breast Cancer Research as part of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group, 100% of your donation, plus more, goes directly to research grants. Our administration costs are covered by THRF Group’s commercial business activities, which boosts funds to breast cancer research each year.
