Prostate Cancer Foundation recognizes Urology's Dr. Arul Chinnaiyan with Challenger Award

Dr. Arul Chinnaiyan recently received a Challenger Award of $1,000,000 to fund research for the Development of New Therapeutics for castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).

These awards, distributed annually by the Prostate Cancer Foundation, aim to support transformational prostate cancer research to accelerate progress towards the reduction of death and suffering due to recurrent or advanced prostate cancer.

PCF Challenger Awards differ from traditional grants in that they are not accompanied by mandates for infrastructure or reporting. Instead, the organization hopes their funding will address research areas that grant funds struggle to address.
