Project RESOLUTE: Research to improve diagnosis and treatments for Cancers of the Colon, Rectum, Liver, Stomach, Pancreas, Bile duct and Neuroendocrine.
Cancers affecting the digestive tract are the commonest cancers in Singapore - more than 3,500 Singaporeans are diagnosed yearly. Over the last 2 decades, research has resulted in improved diagnostic tests, treatment methods and clinical outcomes for patients. Still, more needs to be done!
We are medical oncologists from National Cancer Centre Singapore who take care of patients with gut cancers. We also do research with leading edge technologies to comprehensively study patients' tumors in order to develop new diagnostic tests and innovative treatments to control or eradicate the cancers. Through research, we can help our patients receive the right drugs at the right time and "translate" important science discoveries to benefit our patients.
$415,000 is needed annually to conduct this research ($1.25million over 3 years) which will help our team address some of the most pressing of our patients. Help us improve care and provide better quality of life through our research. Your support will move us closer towards a cure for these cancers!
Established in 2005, the NCC Research Fund serves as the flagship fundraising and grant-making channel of National Cancer Centre of Singapore (NCCS) by providing seeding and bridging funds for an array of translational and clinical research programmes. With cancer research and care under one roof at the NCCS, the knowledge gained from patient-centric research fuels advancement in clinical care, which in turn provides bedside knowledge that drives further research. We firmly believe that todays research will pave the way for tomorrows cure for cancer. Please note that in the event that the donations made for a specific purpose/project: (i) Are less than the minimum $10,000 to support an existing project OR (ii) Has no new applicable project after a 2-years waiting period, the NCC Research Fund Board of Trustees reserves the right to channel these donations to the Funds general pool in support of other worthy research projects.
