The Coffey – Holden Prostate Cancer Academy (CHPCA) Meeting is an annual, invitation-only meeting sponsored by the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and is uniquely designed to be a topic-focused think-tank composed of approximately 75 investigators divided equally by senior investigators and young investigators. The meeting is organized as a series of short presentations followed by lengthy discussion times.

This Meeting is a follow-up to the Prouts Neck Meeting on Prostate Cancer, which was originally held by the Organ Systems Branch of the National Cancer Institute from 1985-2007 and resulted in many significant advances in the prostate cancer field. Sorely missed by the research community, PCF reactivated this meeting in 2013. In 2014, this event was renamed in honor of Dr. Donald Coffey and Dr. Stuart Holden, two remarkable mentors and researchers who have made an immeasurable impact on the understanding and treatment of prostate cancer.
