Innovation


Innovation…creativity…vision…whatever name we use, it is what drives advances in prostate cancer research. It is what is required to develop new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat prostate cancer and better manage the issues experienced by men and their families as they go through their prostate cancer journey. We support innovation in research through Discovery Grants, an evolution of the pre-existing Pilot Grant program.

 
Movember Discovery Grants
 
The Movember Discovery Grants program continues the main goal of supporting “the spark” – aka researchers in that key stage of obtaining early results. The Discovery Grant program supports junior investigators and allows more established investigators to pursue new important directions. It is open to applications from all areas of prostate cancer research. For more details on this project, please click here.
