ICES scientists collaborate on $5 million Prostate Cancer Canada grant


The 2014 Movember Team Grant has been awarded to Dr. John Bartlett of the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research and a team of 14 collaborators that includes ICES scientists Craig Earle, Eileen Rakovitch and Refik Saskin. The $5 million grant, awarded by Prostate Cancer Canada and funded by Movember Canada, recognizes innovation and collaboration in a single research team from a variety of disciplines and institutions across Canada.

The team's project, which is called "The prostate cancer program project in rapid development of novel diagnostic markers for early prostate cancer (PRONTO)," will help to determine at the time of diagnosis if men need aggressive treatment for their prostate cancer or if less aggressive treatment options can be pursued instead.
