Province invests $5 million in prostate centre

The Vancouver Prostate Centre, a UBC and Vancouver General Hospital Centre of Excellence, and a leader in research and treatment of prostate cancer, has received a $5-million grant from the B.C. government.

“This grant will be used to further prostate cancer research towards new treatments that control progression of the disease,” said Dr. Martin Gleave, Director of the Vancouver Prostate Centre at VGH, Distinguished Professor, Dept. of Urologic Sciences at UBC, and Liber Ero BC Leadership Chair in Prostate Cancer Research. “These funds will allow us to recruit and retain world leading scientists who will discover how cancer cells develop resistance and evade current treatments, and pave the way to new treatments in the future.”
