Our ability to fund the most promising young prostate cancer researchers is at risk. The future leaders in research are the individuals who will one day stop prostate cancer being a killer, but with our income devastated by the crisis, we can no longer guarantee funding for them and they risk being forced to leave prostate cancer research. The impact of this could affect men for many generations.
Prostate cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, meaning more men than ever are being affected by this disease.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, we launched a programme specifically for the UK’s most promising future research leaders: our Fellowships.Donate to ensure progress is not lost
Dr George Seed is among the top researchers we want to fund as part of our Fellowship programme. For someone so early in his career, he’s already made a huge impact for men affected by prostate cancer, contributing to 18 scientific papers packed with discoveries about the disease.
Now, Dr Seed plans to transform prostate cancer treatment. He wants to develop a test to help doctors give each man the best treatment for him. His research has the potential to make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of men, who are living with advanced prostate cancer.
Dr George Seed is a superb scientist, who is set to become a very important player in prostate cancer research
We’re desperate to be able to fund work like Dr Seed’s. We believe it has the potential to help men live longer and live well with prostate cancer. And it will help future leaders like Dr Seed continue to make breakthroughs for men with prostate cancer for many years to come.
We hope you’re able to continue to stand with us, and with men, in these trying times.
