Between 2012 and 2015, Movember will have invested a whopping £21 million plus in ourr esearch - helping us reach our lofty goal to fund world class science that aims to identify men at highest risk of getting aggressive prostate cancer, develop better tests to tell aggressive from non-aggressive cancer, and find new targeted treatments for advanced prostate cancer.
This includes funding for the Movember Centres of Excellence– a real highlight of our partnership so far. Throughout the world, the researchers and clinicians who make the biggest impact in prostate cancer research are all based in centres of excellence, but until we got together with Movember to change that, no such centre existed in the UK.
As well as bringing together expert researchers and cliniciansfrom different specialties, the Movember Centres of Excellence also provide a world-class training ground for the scientists of the future. Together, we’re building a legacy of top prostate cancer researchersin the UK.
