London scientist receives nearly £500k in funding for prostate cancer research

A group of London scientists are receiving funding to fill the gaps in the research landscape of prostate cancer.

Funding for non-COVID health research has been cut dramatically and prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK that affects men.

On top of that there’s also the fear that thousands of men have been left undiagnosed as a result of the pandemic .
