According to CCRA's latest report, $480M was invested in cancer research in 2015. The investment in operating grants accounted for a larger proportion of the investment than in previous years due to a decline in investment in equipment/infrastructure. There were significant increases from 2011 to 2015 in the investments made in research on prostate cancer, brain cancer, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia.
