Prostate Cancer Collaborative

Northern England (and Bristol) Collaborative

Collaborative links exist with several groups in the North of England (and Bristol) Collaboration include:

UCL Prostate Group
There are also co-operative links with the UCL “mini” Collaborative headed by Dr John Masters. Particularly with Dr David Hudson at UCL we are involved in a project and also obtaining microarray expression profiles of prostate stem cells.

Cancer Genetics Network
Dr Ros Eeles has through the British Prostate Group organised a UK network of nearly 200 collaborations for identifying and collecting prostate cancer families.

Link to NCRN Trials
The National Cancer Research Network (NCRN) Prostate Cancer Group has been set up to help co-ordinate UK trials on the treatment of prostate cancer. Many of these are multicentre trials that includes Centres (eg, Royal Marsden NHS Trust) that are linked to our Collaborative.

New Collaborators
We are looking for new research groups and clinicians who wish to link to the Collaborative. For further information please contact Professor Colin Cooper at
