Prostate Cancer Research Centre

The Prostate Cancer Research Centre at King’s

There were 47,151 new cases of prostate cancer in the UK and 11,631 deaths from prostate cancer. It is estimated that there is likely to be a 12% rise in the incidence of prostate cancer in the next 15 years. The Prostate Cancer Research Centre (PCRC) was the brainchild of Professor John Masters of University College London, initially called the Covent Garden Research Trust. The purpose of the charity was to fund research into prostate cancer that has been a neglected area of research funding in the UK and worldwide.

The Prostate Cancer Research Centre at King’s comprises three independent research groups, led by Drs Aamir Ahmed, Magali Williamson, and Christine Galustian. These groups are funded by the charity Prostate Cancer Research Centre (registered charity 1156027), which funds research across the UK.

A key objective of our research at the PCRC is to provide alleviation to patients suffering from advanced prostate cancer. The focus is to develop new therapies that could be taken into the clinic as soon as practicable.
