Who selects the research we fund?

As a charity with limited funding, Cancer Council NSW can support only a fraction of the many excellent applications for research funding. 

Research experts, people with cancer, survivors and carers help us decide which research to fund by assessing applications on their scientific merit and potential impact on the community.
