Areas of research interest for this funding call

While we are interested in the areas of research below, we will consider any research avenues relevant to men suffering from advanced prostate cancer:

  • Early stage pilot research that can lead to future, larger research awards. Collaborative research will be encouraged. Interest from early career scientists is strongly encouraged.
  • Recognising that prostate cancer is not a single disease, research leading to new classifications or stratifications of prostate cancer that can improve targeting for existing therapies in advanced disease.
  • Translational research between scientists and clinicians that may translate into novel therapies into clinical treatment of advanced disease.
