  • Events

    APCaRI members are not just a group of stuffy scientists working in a laboratory. We take great pride being a part of community and fundraising events that help raise awareness about prostate cancer. From the Underwear Affair to the Motorcycle Ride for Dad to Movember Events, APCaRI members are there to talk with and ask questions.

  • Donate

    To make this all work, we need research dollars. Your kind donations help APCaRI to identify and test new biomarkers of prostate cancer, design and validate a new fluid biopsy test for prostate cancer diagnosis, purchase research tools and help train the next generation of scientists to carry forward the research ideas of today.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect Canadian men. One in seven men will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime. Here are more ways to help change those statistics.

Congratulations to APCaRI recipients of JAHIP grants!

Congratulations to Drs. John Lewis, Eric Hyndman, Morley Hollenberg and Harvey Quon for being awarded each with a JAHIP grant (Johnson & Johnson Alberta Health Innovation Partnership) to better diagnose prostate cancer using different platforms and to determine mutations in patients with high-risk PCa.

This is a great opportunity to start long-lasting partnerships with J&J and the University Hospital Foundation and to develop new and better tests for PCa.

The original plan was to fund 2 applications, however, due to the high quality of the proposals, the committee decided to grant 2 more.
