Our mission

text: 

Today, a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer is 1 in 8. Globally, breast cancer still causes 522.000 deaths annually...

We are on a mission to change that.

 

BIG is an international not-for-profit organisation that represents the largest global network – over 50 countries, across 6 continents – of academic groups dedicated to breast cancer research.

Our mission is to facilitate and accelerate breast cancer research at the international level. We are convinced that through global research and collaboration, we will find a cure for breast cancer.
