Our research is working towards breakthroughs in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of advanced prostate cancer. We will not stop until everyone diagnosed with one of the USA’s most common cancers is able to live a full and happy life and prostate cancer is no longer a thing to be feared.
Our research is supported by Trusts and Foundations who share our belief that a brighter future is possible if we focus on the development of vital treatments for advanced prostate cancer.
By partnering with Prostate Cancer Research, you can help us to increase our impact and enable great research carried out by great scientists. We believe in working in partnership and our team will help you choose the project which best matches your interests, keep you updated on the progress of the project you support throughout its life, and make sure that you are credited appropriately for the project’s impact.
PCRs innovative work on both early stage innovations and tackling unmet need has so far been supported by the likes of Novartis, Bayer and the Mark Foundation. Could you be our next partner?
If you would like to find out more about supporting the work of PCR, please contact Boris Cooper at BCooper@pcrus.org.
