Australian-Canadian Prostate Cancer Research Alliance

This Alliance is a critical network of academic and clinical experts connected with leading edge technologies to apply their coordinated energies to solve the complex problems facing prostate cancer. The Alliance has assembled a team of translationally-minded prostate cancer researchers across Australia and Canada, bringing them together with the world’s most advanced technologies.  The Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre – Queensland is the Australian headquarters of the Alliance and the Vancouver Prostate Centre is the Canadian Alliance Headquarters.

The partners in the Australian-Canadian Prostate Cancer Research Alliance connect to a hub of prostate cancer research in Brisbane and world class institutes of advanced technologies in Queensland (including AIBN, QBI, IMB, DI, QIMR, and Eskitis Institute), and are linked to every major prostate cancer group across Australia and Canada and their respective resources and infrastructure.

To further the aims of the Alliance, an annual Symposium is held in Queensland.  The Symposium provides a valuable opportunity for Alliance members to showcase the outcomes of their successful collaborations established through the Alliance and to develop new collaborative ventures.  The Alliance website provides further details about Symposia hosted by the Alliance in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
