Abstract : The Weill Cornell Medical College Prostate Cancer Research Program (WCMC-PCRP) is a Clinical Research Site of the Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Consortium (PCCTC). The purpose of the research is to lead and participle in Consortium therapeutic and correlative science research protocols. Specifically, our aims are to impact prostate cancer care and outcomes through the development and study of novel targeted therapeutics, discovery of mechanisms of therapy resistance/sensitivity, identification of new therapeutic targets through high quality genomic analyses, providing access to the highest quality PC tissue specimens, and development of molecular imaging techniques with direct relevance to targeted therapies. Our overarching goal is to more effectively bring novel agents and new biomarker driven trials directly to patients.
