We are funding the cure. Since its inception in 2005, the Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund has awarded millions of dollars to Johns Hopkins scientists in every discipline with good ideas worth pursuing that can help us understand more about prostate cancer — to help us save lives, to find better ways to treat it at every stage, and even to help prevent it. Applications are reviewed by a Scientific Advisory Board composed of noted Hopkins scientists and lay members. These awards wouldn’t have been possible without the tremendous and amazing generosity of our patients and friends. On these pages you’ll find some of the exciting work this year’s award winners are doing to make life better for men with prostate cancer and their families.
