Research Advisory Committee

Our Research Advisory Committee assess the research proposals submitted to the charity for funding, and recommends to our Board of Trustees which research grants offer the greatest potential to benefit men with, or at risk of, prostate cancer.

The membership of the Committee has been carefully selected to ensure a broad range of expertise. The involvement of clinicians/researchers who are independent of the Charity is essential in achieving rigorous and transparent advice.

Our Research Advisory Committee must adhere to our Conflicts of Interest Policy.
