An HOV highway lane provides a fast path to a destination using minimal resources (one car). At PCF, we fund groups of scientists working together towards a singular goal. PCF’s method ensures that researchers do groundbreaking research, with the best resources, and the clearest path to a cure. Traditional research can be mired in paperwork, but PCF’s researchers aren’t required to do 100s of pages of “administrivia.” Instead, we ask only that they (1) share results, (2) spend more time on research, and (3) get life-saving treatments into the hands of patients.
In the past 25 years, PCF has funded work related to nearly every practice-changing development in prostate cancer research, as well as providing seed money to develop late-stage therapies for men who previously had no hope of survival.
