The Prostate Cancer Foundation Human Capital Initiative – Young Investigator Awards
“Supporting a focus on prostate cancer by talented, young investigators is critical to realizing PCF’s goal of accelerating breakthrough discoveries that can potentially end death and suffering from prostate cancer.” – Dr. Howard Soule, PCF Executive Vice President and Chief Science Officer
PCF created the Young Investigator Awards program with one goal: to identify a cohort of future research leaders who will keep the field of prostate cancer research vibrant with new ideas.
The Young Investigator Awards offer career and project support for young (generally 35 and younger) proven investigators in postdoctoral fellowships or who have recently achieved junior faculty positions and are committing their lives to the field of prostate cancer.
The awards were inspired by Donald S. Coffey, PhD, the Prostate Cancer Research Director at Johns Hopkins University for four decades. He has mentored more than 50 scientists and physician-scientists and trained more than 30 of today’s leading prostate cancer researchers.
