A PUBLICATION OF THE PATRICK C. WALSH PROSTATE CANCER RESEARCH FUND

THE PATRICK C. WALSH PROSTATE CANCER FUND AWARDEES
Read About the Research You Have Helped Make Possible

The Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund is the result of great generosity, from many generous patients and friends. It began three years ago, with a novel announcement that said, in effect: “Attention, all Johns Hopkins scientists. We want to find the cure for prostate cancer. We don’t care which discipline you’re in. If you have a good idea, and our scientific advisory board thinks it’s worth pursuing, we will give you some money to help you do it.” So far, with your help, we have raised more than $28 million, and of more than 100 applications, we have funded proposals from the best and brightest scientist at Hopkins, in many departments. These include: Oncology, Pathology, Medicine, Mechanical Engineering, Radiology, Urology, and the School of Public Health. Our scientific advisory board is made up of distinguished Hopkins scientists and two lay members, Joseph Rascoff, Chairman of the Johns Hopkins Prostate Cancer Advisory Board, and Samuel Himmelrich. This year, we awarded more than $1 million to 13 recipients. Some of their work and updates of the work of the scientists funded last year are described here.
