UChicago Medicine researchers are at the forefront of prostate cancer research through a collaboration with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University on a Prostate Cancer SPORE. The program brings together basic scientists, clinicians, pathologists, biostatisticians, bioinformaticians, and patient advocates to advance collaborative research projects that will be carried out by investigators at the Lurie Cancer Center, University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center and NorthShore University HealthSystem. In addition, the interdisciplinary teams will design and conduct innovative clinical trials aimed at improving outcomes and overall quality of life for patients with prostate cancer.
