The PCFA recognizes that current strategies for diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer are inadequate. The PCFA is especially seeking applications in its priority areas for funding including projects seeking to discover the genetic and cellular factors which initiate and/or perpetuate prostate cancer and, develop and clinically validate new, non-invasive tests to detect prostate cancer, and/or to determine whether a patient's cancer is surgically curable.
