This rather obscure organization if the US arm of the principal cancer charity operating in Israel--analogous to the American Cancer Society in the US. The main purpose of the US arm is to fund cancer research conducted in Israel. Israeli cancer scientists have one of the most impressive records of innovation in the World. Moreover, such research is arried out at a fraction of the cost of similar work ccnducted in the US or Europe. ICA USA is a very frugal organization with low administrative and fund-raising costs, hence its relatively low profile yet it has funded the work of Nobel-prize-winning scientists.
