About Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation

The Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation (ACCRF) is a voluntary, non-profit organization whose mission is to support research that will expedite the development of improved therapies and a cure for adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). ACCRF works toward its mission by creating a community of interested researchers that follows an innovative plan of action. In the furtherance of its mission, the Foundation does support broader efforts focused on salivary gland tumors. Major programs center on biobanking, model system development, genomics and drug screening. ACC is a relatively rare form of cancer that most commonly develops in the salivary glands or other regions of the head and neck. In some cases, ACC may arise in other primary sites, such as the skin; the breast; the neck of the uterus (cervix) in females; the prostate gland in males; or other areas.
