Why Supporting Women Cancer Researchers Leads To Victory »

Marcia Tan, Assistant Professor, University of Chicago

The V Foundation has awarded nearly $290 million to cancer researchers throughout the nation. Marcia Tan, recently funded by the Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund, shared, “It is important to have women and women of color bring our unique perspectives to [science] research so that we can mobilize efforts and effectively fight cancer. Women, particularly women of color, have been historically underrepresented, or marginalized, in the field of [science] and cancer research.”

Forbes highlights our efforts to support women researchers who are searching to find cures for various forms of cancer.
