Research

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States, and the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women. Advances in the fight against this terrible disease only occur through medical research focused on finding better methods of diagnosis, more effective treatments, and eventually a cure.

Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the oldest and largest charity in the US funding ovarian cancer research.  Since 1998, OCRF has awarded sceintists at 65 leading medical centers 217 grants for ovarian cancer research: an investment over $57 million.
