Curebound advances how we can better prevent, treat, and ultimately find cures for cancer. We are guided by three core principles:

CURES

Curebound is founded with the deep-seated belief that cures are possible; that cancer is curable. With the knowledge that each small finding leads to a larger discovery and then one day, a breakthrough. Curebound will accelerate the speed at which we transform research into cures.

COLLABORATION

At Curebound, collaboration is central to everything we do. Our funding model creates collaboration across multiple disciplines among the top research institution in San Diego. We provide early phase, follow-on and clinical trial funding to specialized research teams that bring together physician scientists, clinical researchers, and basic science researchers to work in partnership on specific challenges in cancer research.

COMMUNITY

In some way, this cause will touch all of our lives: every person, family and community. Curebound serves all of San Diego’s diverse communities, united with one vision: cures in our lifetime. Through the power of collaboration and the spirit of community, we will ensure that the next generation doesn’t hear the words “you have cancer” in the way we do today.
