To help sustain women-led cancer research, bolster the careers of female researchers, and support a more robust pipeline of women in cancer research leadership roles, SYNA and ACS have signed an agreement for “Gloves with a Purpose™” in which the sale of nitrile examination gloves will help fund 299 women-led cancer research projects.

We believe in medical breakthroughs for a world without cancer. We know it takes all of us to break through.

We are proud to support women in the field and thankful for our dedicated partners.

A cancer-free future is possible. Help us end cancer.

The American Cancer Society is a top supporter of women in cancer research. Currently, nearly half of ACS’s grantees are women, most of them early in their careers. As of January 1, 2021, there are 664 grants in effect totaling $382.2 million, and half of that total 299 are women-led research projects totaling $156.1 million.

The 299 women-led research projects selected for funding are addressing a multitude of cancers including: Brain Tumor, Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Head and Neck Cancer, Leukemia, Liver Cancer, Lung Cancer, Lymphoma, Ovarian Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Skin Cancer, Thyroid Cancer.

Women make invaluable contributions to cancer research, yet they are underrepresented in research leadership. As the leading non-profit funder of cancer research in the US, ACS can help sustain women-led cancer research, launch new careers, and inspire a new generation of young women considering careers in science. The ResearcHERS program ensures that women continue to be powerful and growing forces to help save lives from all types of cancer.

While the ACS has funded 49 researchers who have received the Nobel Prize, none of them have been a woman…yet. With support from programs like ResearcHERS, the ACS is conducting and funding ground-breaking cancer research to help extend, better, and save lives.
