DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE - CONGRESSIONALLY DIRECTED MEDICAL RESEARCH PROGRAMS

A major goal of the PCRP is to bring together exceptional teams of prostate cancer researchers in a multidisciplinary, synergistic manner to best address major issues and needs in prostate cancer research and clinical care. To accomplish this goal, the PCRP supports several consortia at leading prostate cancer research institutions, as shown below.

Clinical Consortium Awards


The Prostate Cancer Clinical Consortium Award mechanism was established in 2005 to support the collaborations and resources necessary to rapidly execute Phase II or Phase I/II clinical trials of therapeutic agents or approaches for the management or treatment of prostate cancer. The overarching goal of the award is to combine the efforts of leading investigators to bring to market novel therapeutic interventions that will ultimately decrease the overall impact of prostate cancer. The FY13 Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Consortium (PCCTC) currently consists of 11 PCRP funded institutions.

Prostate Cancer Pathology Resource Network Awards


The Prostate Cancer Pathology Resource Network Award was established in 2009 to provide support for the development of a prostate cancer biorepository consortium that will facilitate the collection, processing, annotation, storage, and distribution of high-quality human prostate cancer biospecimens through a collaborative network across multiple institutions. The award is designed to support a biorepository that will enable the prostate cancer research community to address multiple areas of research such as biomarkers, therapy, genetics, and tumor biology to move toward the PCRP vision of conquering prostate cancer.
