For researchers

How we can support you and your research

We're the UK's leading charity dedicated to prostate cancer research. It's our mission to fund the highest quality research, and the most promising individuals, to transform treatment, diagnosis and prevention of prostate cancer. 

But our grant funding is just the start. We're dedicated to supporting the prostate cancer research community, who are making the breakthroughs that are changing men's lives. We can help strengthen your applications by putting you in touch with our Patient Network, support your trial recruitment, and keep you up to date with the latest opportunities in the field, to make sure your research will have the biggest impact possible for men affected by prostate cancer.

Existing Trials: New Answers Major Awards 2019/20

Now Open for application

We are looking to fund projects which aim to utilise and interrogate existing patient samples and/or data from recently completed or ongoing prostate cancer clinical trials, or from other data/sample repositories.

Capitalising on these existing resources, proposals must seek to answer new and innovative questions, which if addressed, could make a significant impact in the way prostate cancer is diagnosed or treated. This could be the in-depth analysis of trial databases, repositories of patient data, images and/or patient samples, to investigate new hypotheses that could, for instance, help identify responders/non-responders to particular therapies, or to discover biomarkers which may more accurately distinguish aggressive cancer from indolent disease etc.

Proposals must have a strong central hypothesis. Applications that are not hypothesis-driven and which are seeking to only collect or curate patient samples/trial data will not be accepted.
