Over the past decade, many clinical trials have and are taking place internationally which are changing the way prostate cancer is diagnosed and treated. Many of these trials have not only produced practice-changing results, but in addition have amassed large quantities of clinical data and patient samples which hold huge potential to help the research community investigate a number of unanswered questions. In addition, organisations such as Biobank UK and UK Clinical Research Collaboration have developed valuable resources to help researchers access patient data and samples to investigate the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of serious and life-threatening illnesses.
If the data and samples amassed through these clinical trials and other initiatives could be used to answer those questions, we may be able to significantly and quickly improve the way prostate cancer is diagnosed and treated.
On 5 August 2019, we launched a funding call for proposals looking 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.
