Benioff Initiative for Prostate Cancer Research

Benioff Initiative for Prostate Cancer Research

The mission of the UCSF Benioff Initiative for Prostate Cancer Research is to understand the fundamental biology underlying aggressive prostate cancer and develop strategies that will lead to a cure for metastatic disease.

The Initiative has proposed an ambitious set of goals for the first five years:
  1. Identify new molecular drivers of aggressive prostate cancer
  2. Understand how these molecular drivers lead to specific cancer features
  3. Develop new therapeutic approaches to metastatic prostate cancer
  4. Launch clinical trials that benefit patients who don't respond to existing treatment regimens
