60% of high-priority research goes unfunded.
Finding prostate cancer
Prostate cancer can be detected early using a PSA test and a digital rectal exam. Most of the time, the earlier you find cancer, the better. Prostate cancer seems to be different. Large, reliable studies haven’t been able to tell us clearly whether it’s a good thing to use these tests to look for prostate cancer.
Together we can reduce the burden of cancer
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
