Leader of Global Breast Cancer Movement Continues Unprecedented Investment in Research Despite Troubled Global Economy

DALLAS, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Committed to caring for those coping with breast cancer while trying to rid future generations of the disease, Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R), the world's leading breast cancer organization, today announced $60 million in research grants to U.S. and international scientists.

This year's allocation includes $25.7 million earmarked for Komen for the Cure's unique Promise Grants - grants to investigators from various disciplines and sometimes different institutions, working as one team to solve difficult challenges in breast cancer.

Komen is set to fund four Promise Grants in 2009, and for the first time, Komen will receive co-funding from another breast cancer organization - the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation - to explore an aggressive form of breast cancer known as triple negative breast cancer.

In its 27 years, Komen for the Cure has invested more than $400 million in life-saving research that has touched every major advance in breast cancer treatment and care. This year's grants slate is set to support scientists at 54 universities and hospitals in 26 states and one foreign country.

"Cancer research has been the cornerstone of our organization since our very first year, and despite the downturn in the economy, our pledge to fund quality research remains unabated. Breast cancer doesn't care about the economy, and with more than 1.3 million new cases of breast cancer expected this year, the need for new and continuing cancer research is more urgent than ever," said Hala Moddelmog, Komen's CEO and president.

This year, Komen is funding Promise Grants at:
