Grants

Establishment of the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre – Queensland

In 2009, the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing (DOHA) funded two national prostate cancer research centres: The Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre – Queensland (APCRC-Q) based in Brisbane and the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre@Epworth based in Melbourne. 

In 2013, additional funding from the Australian Government Department of Health was provided to APCRC-Q and APCRC@Epworth and a third centre, the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre - New South Wales, was established in Sydney.

APCRC-Q is a joint initiative between the Queensland University of Technology's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, and the Princess Alexandra Hospital.  The Centre is co-located at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and the Translational Research Institute.

The DOHA funding established APCRC-Q as an integrated, transdisciplinary, comprehensive prostate cancer research centre to support a range of relevant translational activities for the development of prostate cancer therapeutics and biomarkers for genetic predisposition, early detection, differentiation of indolent versus aggressive disease and prognosis, and therapeutic response indicators to inform treatment options and planning.  This included a strong focus on research capacity building and developing collaborative networks locally, nationally and internationally.
