The Prostate Cancer Foundation Human Capital Initiative
PCF and its partners grant awards that recognize top presentations at international cancer research meetings. Recognition Awards go to investigators not currently funded by PCF who have a record of outstanding accomplishments in prostate cancer research.
- The AACR-PCF Prostate Cancer Research Recognition Awards for Research Excellence
The Prostate Cancer Foundation partners with the American Association of Cancer Researchers (AACR) to provide financial support for early-career scientists to travel to AACR scientific meetings to present exceptional papers in the field of translational prostate cancer research.
- PCF-SUO Recognition Awards
The Prostate Cancer Foundations partners with the Society of Urologic Oncologists to help investigators offset the costs of travel to present their promising research papers at the American Urological Association Annual Meeting.
Attendance at these meetings provides young investigators with top-notch scientific education as well as valuable networking, collaboration and mentorship opportunities. It also promotes the exchange of scientific information with PCF researchers and ultimately helps to bring new findings into clinical practice.
