2011/12 - Giant step forward for men
With the launch of our new Research Strategy 2012-20 we took a huge step towards becoming a game-changing investor in prostate cancer research. With help from the Movember Foundation, we've committed to spend £7 million on research each year for at least the next three years. This is a huge increase. We decided to focus on funding projects aimed at:
- Identifying men at highest risk of developing clinically significant prostate cancer
- Distinguishing aggressive prostate cancer from indolent disease
- Finding new, targeted treatments for advanced prostate cancer
Information on available grant funding can be found on our For researchers pages.
In Spring 2011 we became the first men's health organisation to gain membership of the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI). The NCRI is a partnership between the government, charity and industry which promotes co-operation amongst its members for the benefit of patients, the public and the scientific community.
