A $5 million Movember Team Grant has been awarded to Dr. Ralph Buttyan, researcher with the Vancouver Prostate Centre and VCH Research Institute, to lead a team of 22 co-investigators across Canada. The title of their research is Tumour Cell Plasticity in Treatment-Resistant Prostate Cancer and their study will focus on targeting aggressive and lethal cancer.
The Movember Team Grants program promotes collaboration not only between researchers, but also institutions, and promotes a united approach to prostate cancer research. The team approach allows researchers to tackle issues from all angles and propose innovative solutions while also providing a training environment for investigators starting their research career.
