The Movember Discovery Grants program builds on the success of the previous programs and continues the main goal of supporting researchers in that key stage of obtaining early results. The Discovery Grant program supports junior investigators and allows more established investigators to pursue new important directions. It is open to applications from all areas of prostate cancer research.
