The impact of our research

We've been funding research into prostate cancer since the 1990s and we've seen a lot of advances in that time. We know that there’s still a lot more to be done, but our research is already making a difference to men’s lives.

We’ve made a lot of ground-breaking discoveries that are getting us closer to the day when we can stop prostate cancer being a killer. Here are some of our highlights from the work that you’ve helped to support:

Building a research workforce

Our funding helped set up the first prostate cancer dedicated labs and train specialist researchers
