About Research at PCC

Prostate cancer is a complex disease. More men than ever are being diagnosed each year, and it will claim the lives of an estimated  4,000 men in 2012. That’s why Prostate Cancer Canada is pleased be contributing to innovative advancements in prostate cancer research and significant increases in survivorship support.

The vision at PCC is to develop programs to support research that will have the greatest potential to improve prostate cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment and better manage survivorship issues.
