About Us

Changing Lives to Save Lives

30 years ago, the American Institute for Cancer Research was founded on a simple but radical idea: everyday choices can reduce our chances of getting cancer.

We were the first organization to focus research on the link between diet and cancer and translate the results into practical information for the public. AICR embraced the mission of changing lives to save lives.
