The Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund   
Here's Some of the Exciting Research You Have Helped Support

Patrick Walsh
Honorary degree: Patrick C. Walsh, M.D.,was
awarded the Doctor Honoris Causa by the Medical
School of the University of Athens for his
contributions to the field of prostate cancer research.

It’s been a remarkable five years since we launched the Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund. We welcomed every scientist at Johns Hopkins, in every department, to compete for a grant; our only requirement was that they had a good idea that could help us defeat prostate cancer. This year, we awarded more than $1 million to 13 recipients — talented scientists all, and blessed with the kind of creative thinking that is going to help make life better for men with prostate cancer, and their families.
