The Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project   takes a new approach to cancer research. Researchers partner directly with men with metastatic and/or advanced prostate cancer, who share their samples and clinical information in order to speed up important discoveries. The project is being launched and funded by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard — a non-profit academic research institution with a mission to dramatically accelerate the understanding and treatment of disease — and conducted in collaboration with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and our advocacy partners. The project invites participation from men around the country with metastatic and/or advanced prostate cancer to study their cancer using cutting-edge genomic and molecular research studies performed at the Broad Institute.
