About us Who We Are The Mission of PCRC is to develop new therapy for men with advanced prostate cancer. The immediate goal is to increase survival and our vision is a cure for the disease. The Prostate Cancer Research Centre is the only charity solely focused on funding world class scientists developing new treatments for advanced prostate cancer. Why is PCRC important? Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men. Over 11,000 men die every year in the UK and the number increases every year. Advanced prostate cancer is treated with hormone therapy, developed in the 1940s. Hormone therapy is still the primary and most effective treatment for advanced prostate cancer. Consequently, survival rates have improved little over the last 70 years. New and more effective therapy is urgently needed. We are dedicated to improving the survival of the next generation of men and better treatment can only come through research. Every year more men are dying of prostate cancer. Men need new and more effective therapy. Please help our world class scientists improve survival for the next generation of men with life-threatening prostate cancer. It is only through research that we can make progress. Professor John Masters, Research Manager.
