Rising Star in Prostate Cancer Research

Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) is proud to offer the Rising Star in Prostate Cancer Research program, which provides salary and research support for outstanding research scientists initiating careers as independent investigators in prostate cancer research.

These awards, offered annually, provide the opportunity for research scientists within the first 5 years of their first academic or research appointment to develop and demonstrate independence in initiating and conducting prostate cancer research.

The proposed research project must be in the area of prostate cancer and may address any of the broad areas of prostate cancer research, including but not limited to:
  • prostate cancer biology
  • treatment
  • diagnosis
  • survivorship
  • prevention
The amount available for this program is subject to funds raised. The number of awards to be distributed is contingent upon availability of resources and the quality of applications received. The current plan is to distribute five awards with a maximum amount per award of $150,000 per year ($75,000 for salary support and $75,000 for research expenses) for up to 3 years.

This opportunity is proudly funded by the Movemeber Foundation and Canada Safeway.

This year we are proud to announce a special opportunity for researchers in western Canada through a generous grant from Canada Safeway.
