Our revenue comes from grants from institutional, corporate and private donors and fees charged for studies conducted with partners or services to the oncology community that enables us to fulfil our mission and vision.
Clinical studies evaluating new drugs for potential registration, or testing therapeutic agents, are conducted in partnership with commercial organizations.
