ToPCaP

ToPCaP (Transdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Partnership) is an international, multi-disciplined, organized consortium of prostate cancer researchers with access to a unique combination of facilities, data, biobanks and equipment who are pursuing the most urgent prostate cancer questions.

Our mission is to characterize molecular pathways important in prostate cancer development and progression and to distinguish between indolent and aggressive prostate cancer for translational impact. We address this through an international, multi-disciplined, organized consortium of prostate cancer experts with access to unique, substantial, and growing biobanks. We believe the synergy created by combining the long term, population science perspective of epidemiology with the molecular data discipline of pathology will allow us to answer fundamentally important questions about prostate cancer.
