Translational Prostate Cancer Research Collaborative (TPCRC)

 

Members of the prostate team have formed a translational Prostate Cancer research collaborative to coordinate their activities in Cambridge.

The following institutions are involved:

  • Departments of Pathology, Radiology, Oncology and Urology at Addenbrookes Hospital
  • Cambridge Urology Bio-repository – Cambridge Cancer Centre
