About the Love Research Army

Bringing Together Researchers and People to Advance the Work

The Love Research Army, formerly the Army of Women, is a program of the Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. This groundbreaking initiative connects all people, with or without breast cancer, to researchers committed to solving important breast cancer questions. Our goal is to forge partnerships between our members and the scientific community.

In October 2008, the Dr. Susan Love Foundation partnered with the Avon Foundation for Women to launch the Army of Women. Thanks to the Avon Foundation's generous support over the first five years, this program has developed into a vital resource for breast cancer researchers and has served as a model for fast-tracking breast cancer research for over 11 years now. In 2020, in order to better reflect our longstanding commitment to fostering inclusive research the Army of Women has rebranded itself as Love Research Army. Same mission. Same goals. Different name. Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research is a 501(c)(3) non-profit breast cancer organization dedicated to ending breast cancer by engaging the public and the scientific communities in innovative research. We do this through performing and facilitating innovative and collaborative research, translating science to engage the public as informed partners, and inspiring novel research.
