Prostate Cancer UK calls for research proposals which aim to
address our key priority areas for research:
- Identifying men at highest risk of developing clinically
significant prostate cancer;
- Distinguishing aggressive prostate cancer from indolent
- Finding new, targeted treatments for advanced prostate
Please see our Research Strategy for
further details on these priority areas. Further details may
also be found in our Frequently Asked Questions
Project Grants and Pilot Awards
Prostate Cancer UK with funding from the Movember Foundation,
announces that the next round for Pilot and Project grants opens on
30 April 2014 and will close at 12
noon on 9 July 2014.
We welcome applications from established researchers within the
UK - who have a strong track record in their field - to undertake
innovative science which addresses (at least) one of our research priority
areas. In this round we will be prioritising the
- Research that seeks to understand the difference in
prevalence and outcomes for prostate cancer in African and African
Caribbean men compared to men from other ethnic
- Research into survivorship, specifically focussed on
the side effects and late effects of prostate cancer, including
those caused by any prostate cancer treatments
This call closed at 12 (noon) on 9

2014 Targeted call – A risk assessment tool for prostate
One of the major challenges facing men in the
UK today is that there is no reliable, widely applicable, easy way
to assess their individual risk of developing prostate cancer.
Without such a tool it is impossible to develop screening,
monitoring and treatment regimes that are tailored to a man’s
personal risk of developing the disease.
Through this targeted call, which will be part-funded through
our partnership with the Movember Foundation, we seek applications
from UK-based researchers to fund research that seeks to address
this knowledge gap. Our vision is that this research will deliver a
tool backed by appropriate evidence that is ready for widescale
clinical implementation through NHS primary care within a 5 year
timescale. Ultimately, the aim of a new risk assessment tool should
be to reduce unnecessary biopsies and treatment and increase the
number of men whose prostate cancer is detected and treated
