THE PATRICK C. WALSH PROSTATE CANCER RESEARCH FUND AWARDEES

Scientists Named in New Round of Funding

It's been two years now since The Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund threw open its doors to any scientist at Johns Hopkins — in any discipline — with a good idea worth pursuing, to further our understanding of prostate cancer and help us find the cure.

So far, thanks to the tremendous generosity of our patients and friends, we've raised $28.7 million. In an era of dwindling funding from the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense — despite the increasing number of men diagnosed each year with prostate cancer — never has this support, and this kind of research fund, been more vital. We are now able to provide $1,000,000 a year to fund proposals from the best and brightest Hopkins scientists in many departments, including Oncology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Epidemiology. This year, we received applications from nearly 40 Hopkins scientists, as well as requests for continued funding from last year's awardees.

The applications were vetted by a scientific advisory board composed 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 $1,000,000 to thirteen recipients, most of whom are young investigators with new ideas. Some of their work is described below.
