We need your donations to support our seed money grant program for new research as well as our educational and patient support activities.

Seed Money Grants

We have pioneered the "seed money" concept for prostate cancer research, providing over $235,000 since 1998 to carefully selected promising researchers and their projects.

Grants have been made to researchers at AntiCancer, Inc., San Diego, University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Texas, and the Bone and Mineral (Endocrinology) Research Laboratory, San Diego Veterans Affairs Medical Center, La Jolla, CA.

The PC-REF seed money method works: Dr. Robert Fleischmann, Jr. at the University of Texas Medical Branch was awarded a $558,750 grant by the Department of Defense for immune system research based on work funded by $ 85,000 in seed money from PC-REF. This is seed money in action.

We funded preliminary work at AntiCancer, Inc. in San Diego on the effect of bisphosphonates in preventing metastases to the bones. AntiCancer is now carrying that work forward independently, based on early work funded by PC-REF.

We need your support to continue this important work. PC-REF provides a critical link for researchers to open the door to new treatments against prostate cancer.
