Real-world Evidence

The Jayne Koskinas Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health and Policy (JKTG Foundation) funds cancer research, policy projects, and events that foster public discussion to improve the quality and effectiveness of care patients experience.

In 2024, JKTG Foundation work focuses on emerging cancer research with particular interest in collaborative multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary research of breast cancer metastasis. The JKTG Foundation is honored to be supported by Team TGM, a championship-winning race team that competes in the Michelin Pilot Challenge.

Below are initiatives JKTG Foundation is supporting.

Research & Policy Analysis
