by:

The National Science Foundation, otherwise referred to as NSF, is a United States Government agency that is primarily responsible for pursuing and ensuring fundamental research studies and education in all the non-medical fields of science and engineering.

The programs and activities of the NSF are administered in an effort to help them realize their mission, which is "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense."

In keeping with this mission, the National Science Foundation, in close cooperation the National Cancer Institute, has recently developed the Physical and Engineering Sciences in Oncology Program wherein they intend to obtain a more thorough understanding of cancer disorders with the application of physical and engineering sciences.
