The successful clinical translation of new technologies to the clinic requires a wide range of expertise. Our multi-disciplinary group of more than 100 prostate cancer scientists, physicians, trainees and healthcare employees from five leading Alberta health research institutions are working with an international collaborative network to achieve our translational research goals – to make a meaningful impact on health policy and the outcomes of patients living with prostate cancer.

Our overall goal is to improve patient outcomes and quality of life by developing and successfully translating to the clinic innovative tests that are more sensitive, more accurate and more cost-effective than current tests for prostate cancer.

The Bird Dogs: Pointing for the Prostate Cancer Cure

For years, Frank Sojonky hid his battle with prostate cancer from the world. But by 2004 he could hide it no longer, as the disease metastasized and began to spread. So when he learned from his oncologist, Dr. Peter Venner, that a chair in prostate cancer research was needed in Alberta, he made his personal goal to raise the funds to do it. That is how the Bird Dogs started and thanks to them and the Alberta Cancer Foundation, Dr. John Lewis and the Alberta Prostate Cancer Research Initiative are making important discoveries to improve the lives of those with prostate cancer.
