Results of the February 2020 Movember Prostate Cancer Translation Acceleration Grant in Advanced Imaging

We are pleased to announce the results of the most recent Translation Acceleration Grants competition. With this funding opportunity, members of the prostate cancer research community were asked to collaboratively participate in a multi-stage process to submit one or more application(s) for an investigator-initiated Translation Acceleration Grant (TAG). New imaging modalities are increasing our ability to detect low volume prostate cancer metastases. The project funded by this mechanism will explore how advanced imaging such as PET, CT and mpMRI, together with appropriate treatment for men with advanced prostate cancer can lead to better outcomes. Below is a listing of the newly awarded Movember Translation Acceleration Grant.

Funding for this competition has been provided by Movember. This project totals almost $3 million in funding over the full term of the grant.
