2012 Movember Clinician Scientist Awards











Prostate Cancer Canada would like to recognize the Movember Foundation as a key funder of this program.

Prostate Cancer Canada is pleased to announce the awarding of two Movember Clinician Scientist Awards.

In order to decide which research projects should receive funding, each application is thoroughly reviewed by at least two cancer experts. These experts make recommendations to PCC regarding which research projects to fund. This process is called 'peer review'. The peer review process ensures that only the most meritorious research is supported. This year's successful research projects explore many different areas of prostate cancer including novel treatment therapies and the development of new tools to help better predict disease progression.
