About PCRC

The Prostate Cancer Research Centre (PCRC) is the only prostate cancer charity that focuses on research and innovation, concentrating on developing novel and effective treatments for men with advanced prostate cancer.

The Challenge

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer killer in men, killing 30 men a day in the UK. If breakthroughs are not made, it could kill 50 men a day by 2035. However, research into prostate cancer continues to be underfunded. These men are someone’s father, grandfather, brother and son, which is why we must do better.

About Us

This is where the Prostate Cancer Research Centre (PCRC) comes in. We focus on science, research and innovation, concentrating on developing novel and effective treatments for men with advanced prostate cancer. This is because whilst prostate cancer is treatable in the prostate, it become incurable and life-limiting when it spreads.

We may be small, but we are ambitious and determined. That’s why we are scaling up our research capacity and investing in innovative projects that are scientifically excellent. This year we announced an exciting £2 million investment into 7 new prostate cancer research projects, increasing UK prostate cancer research spend by 10%, and that’s just the start. Our sights are set high for the future, and we will not rest until we find better treatments for prostate cancer.

Putting People First

We believe that patients should be at the heart of everything we do. Only those affected by prostate cancer can truly understand the journey, and we want to use their expertise to create treatments that aren’t toxic, with debilitating side-effects and reduce a man’s quality of life.

We want to provide a better future for men and their families affected by prostate cancer, all of which wouldn’t be possible without the help of our amazing supporters, so thank you.
