Progress on finding new treatment can only be made through research. We are funding world class scientists in world class institutions to ensure we are moving closer every day to achieving our mission.


PCRC has four programmes of research

1. Targeting the spread of prostate cancer

2. Targeting the prostate cancer stem cells

3. Boosting the immune system to kill prostate cancer cells

4. Development of models to test the new therapies before they go into the clinic


 £2,500

DNA is the basis of human life, and when it is corrupted cancer can develop. £2500 will provide one researcher with DNA sequencing kits to last one year.

 £1,000

We study prostate cancer cells in the laboratory. £1000 will supply one team with a set of pipettes to accurately measure tiny volumes of liquid containing the cancer cells.

 £500

£500 pays for 500 of our Prostate Cancer Information Booklets, to be sent out for free to help newly diagnosed men and their families make the decisions they will face regarding treatment and care.

 £250

We need to distinguish normal and cancer cells in the laboratory. £250 will pay for a fluorescent antibody for detecting prostate cancer cells

 £100

We need to grow prostate cancer cells in the laboratory as a starting point to test new drugs. £100 will buy a bottle of liquid food for growing the cells.
