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.

Russ Greiner’s Team “PC LEARN”, tied for 1st in the Prostate Cancer DREAM Challenge

Competing with 50 teams from around the world in the Prostate Cancer DREAM Challenge, University of Alberta’s PC LEARN team tied for 1st in one of the 3 sub-challenges
to predict the survival and toxicity of Docetaxel treatment in patients with metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer!

“The DREAM Challenge was an exciting opportunity for us to apply machine learning to real medical data and possibly to contribute to medical research.” said lead PI and APCaRI member Russ Greiner.

The primary benefit of this Challenge will be to establish new quantitative benchmarks for prognostic modeling in mCRPC, with a potential impact for clinical decision making and ultimately understanding the mechanism of disease progression. https://www.synapse.org/#!Synapse:syn2813558/wiki/70844
