About Israel Cancer Research Fund
The Israel Cancer Research Fund/ICRF is a voluntary charitable organization that receives its total income from private donations. ICRF was founded in 1975 by a group of American and Canadian researchers, oncologists, and lay people determined to harness Israel’s educational and scientific resources in the fight against cancer. Its initial purpose was to stem the brain drain of Israeli researchers by providing funds for postdoctoral fellowships for young Ph.D.s. ICRF is the only U.S.-based charity solely devoted to supporting cancer research in Israel.
