The 2016 State of Science Report is a summary of the presentations and discussions that took place at the 23rd Annual Prostate Cancer Foundation Scientific Retreat, held in October, 2016, in Carlsbad, CA.  For the past twenty-three years, PCF has convened an Annual Scientific Retreat in order to bring together diverse researchers in a collaborative forum to present and discuss new and largely unpublished findings for prostate cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, and to define the challenges that impede progress toward better treatments and a cure.

The tradition of publishing a yearly State of the Science Report and an accompanying scientific publication began in 2008, for the purpose of disseminating the knowledge from the Retreat throughout the scientific community and the public.  We hope these scientific reports and publications will be useful to you and will promote the development of new ideas, data exchange, and discourse, as well as stimulate support for scientific research.


The 2016 State of Science Report is now available for download.
