Talented People

PCC is training and helping to retain the best prostate cancer research leaders – current and next generation. How do we do this? Through the following:

Rising Star

This program provides salary and research support for outstanding research scientists initiating careers as independent investigators in prostate cancer research – an important time during which we need to support the next generation or risk losing them to other fields or countries. The awards provide the opportunity for research scientists within 5 years of their first academic or research appointment to develop and demonstrate independence in initiating and conducting prostate cancer research.

Clinician Scientist
