Abstract:

The Tri-Service Project Working Group, under the direction of the US Army Medical Research and Development Command convened in the fall of 1997 and throughout early 1998 to develop an agenda for prostate cancer research. Members of the Tri-Service Project Working Group were composed of the US Army medical Research and Development Command, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and various urologic military medical researchers from Army, Navy, and Air Force medical centers. The Director for Prostate Cancer Research, Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs, US Army Medical Research and Development Command chaired the Tri-Service Project Working Group. The Tri-Service Project Working Group expressed a need for a centralized repository which would include sera, tissue and clinical data of prostate cancer patients which would serve as a national resource for prostate cancer research, and directed a scientific proposal be develop for submission to US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command for funding. The project was recommended for funding 22 September 1998 contingent upon resolution of the Peer and Programmatic reviews to be conducted in two phases. Phase I directed the hire of a study coordinator to assist the principal investigator in day-to-day management, and to develop and submit a revised proposal to address the weaknesses and deficiencies noted in peer and programmatic review. A revised proposal was submitted 1 June 1999 addressing the weaknesses and deficiencies noted in the peer and programmatic review. The project is currently waiting funding.
