Nobody wants to think about cancer, especially prostate cancer. Nobody wants to get screened, and especially, nobody wants to even think about getting a rectal exam to check for prostate cancer. We get that.
PCF identifies the most promising research ideas and attracts brilliant individuals and teams of scientists, early in their careers, to PCF’s Research Enterprise. By channeling resources directly to the world’s top scientific minds, PCF is able to cut through red tape, speed scientific breakthroughs and deliver new treatments to patients.
