Research Projects

Oracle’s mission is to fund the very best projects that yield the most promising results.

Every research project funded by Oracle Cancer Trust goes through a rigorous vetting procedure with independent, voluntary committees who provide expert opinion.  All projects are reviewed annually with written and verbal progress updates provided to ensure that project goals are met according to Oracle’s stringent funding guidelines and those set by AMRC.
