Prostate Cancer Research Centre

We believe in a better future for men with prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer Research Centre (PCRC) is the only UK charity solely dedicated to developing treatments for men with life-threatening prostate cancer.

Too many men are dying too young

Martin Dallison was just 52 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and told he had 18 months to live.  Martin died on November 19th 2018 but he was adamant that the appeal should go ahead to raise more funding for research and to give other men the chance for a brighter outcome.

New treatments to save lives

Christine Galustian, one of the charity’s lead scientists, has identified a way to use a protein that stimulates the immune system to attack prostate cancer cells, leaving normal cells alive. Christine and her team have successfully reduced tumour growth by 60% in the lab and all money sent to this appeal will enable her work to be tested in men next year.

Together we can beat prostate cancer

Every year 45,000 men in the UK receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer, one in three is incurable. With more research we can change this by developing new and effective treatments. Together we can beat prostate cancer.
