The Center for Translational Cancer Research

Prostate Cancer Working Group (PCWG)

The Prostate Cancer Working Group (PCWG) consists of members of laboratories with a shared interest in prostate cancer, its origins, progression, metastasis to bone, biomarkers, and development of novel therapeutics. In addition to regular meetings of the group during which researchers present their recent data, the team also shares reagents, ideas, cell lines, animal models, and patient obtained tissues in order to foster a collaborative atmosphere of translational research. The group interacts with the genitourinary multidisciplinary center at the HFGCC and has an active protocol in place for procurement of fresh tissues from prostate cancer patients.
