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.
