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.
New funding opportunity launching in May 2019
Our ambition is to stop prostate cancer from killing thousands of men each year. Every man diagnosed with the disease should receive the most effective treatment for their cancer. To achieve this, we need to add new treatment options to our arsenal, and to be smarter with how and when we use these therapies to achieve maximum effect.
In May 2019, we will be launching a funding call for research groups to investigate the immunology of prostate cancer, and strategies which may increase the success and impact of immunotherapeutic approaches in the future. Full details about this call will be released over the coming weeks, so please keep an eye out for further announcements.
We're launching an image competition: Research Revealed, which has a selection of prizes up for grabs.
A picture is worth 1000 words, so we want you to get creative, and find the images that encapsulate the ground-breaking work you do. They’ll help our supporters engage with research in a way they never have before, and give you a platform to tell the world why your work matters. Selected images will be showcased on our website and in publications, and exhibited at UK-wide events, giving unmissable exposure to your work.
For the winning images, there are three cash prizes of £100 to be won. And to the owner of the overall winning image, an exclusive invitation to witness the workings of our Research Advisory Committee as they assess applications.
The deadline for submission is 22 March.
Our flagship Making Progress day brings together early career prostate cancer researchers for networking, training and development opportunities.
This event is aimed at early career researchers working within the field of prostate cancer research. The 2019 Making Progress day will take place on Friday 18 October and open for registration in June (date to be confirmed).
