Our Scientific Advisory Committee
The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) consists of UK research scientists who are leading authorities in cancer research, share and champion the values of our Research Strategy, and have between them a diverse breadth of expertise. Chaired by Professor Colin Cooper, they review funding proposals and advise the charity on its research strategy and activities.
When making decisions on grant proposals, the SAC considers reviews from at least two independent experts, feedback from people directly affected by prostate cancer, and the applicant’s response to peer review and patient representative comments.
We would like to thank our former SAC members, Professor Anne Ridley, FRS, and Professor Jonathan Ashmore, FRS, for their invaluable contributions to the scientific direction of the charity.
