Becoming a part of the solution: The Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project
The Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is one of the most sophisticated bioscience and biotechnology research centers in North America. It seeks to empower a revolution in biomedicine that will accelerate the speed at which we can conquer disease. The Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project is a new initiative being coordinated by the Broad Institute. Initially, it will allow any patient in North America with advanced or metastatic prostate cancer to contribute his personal genetic, genomic, and clinical data to the development of the world's most comprehensive database on advanced prostate cancer permitting the entire prostate cancer research community access this database and accelerate discoveries related to the management of advanced prostate cancer. The prostate cancer panel led by Mike Scott will be talking to Dr. Eli Van Allen about the project.
