Annual Grant for Pilot Studies and Team Research Projects
Since 1915, the Brady Urological Institute at Johns Hopkins has sought better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat prostate cancer, the number one cancer in men. Over the past 20 years, progress has skyrocketed.
Important discoveries have been made by basic scientists, urologists, medical and radiation oncologists, and pathologists at Johns Hopkins — individuals with diverse backgrounds and unique skills, working tirelessly together to tackle the same enemy.
The Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund was established to ensure that this multidisciplinary approach to prostate cancer discovery continues to flourish, and that new scientists from other fields are drawn into endeavor. Each year, our scientific advisory board grants funding to the most promising prostate cancer research projects.
About the Fund
Named in honor of Dr. Patrick C. Walsh, who served as Chairman of the Brady Urological Institute for more than 30 years, the Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund was designed to attract outstanding Johns Hopkins University scientists who bring fresh thinking and new research initiatives to the field of prostate cancer. The inaugural round of awards were given in the Spring of 2005.
