Cancer Research Genetics UK have donated £10,000 to Professor Ros Eeles Prostate Cancer Genetic Research at the Institute of Cancer Research in London.

Professor Ros Eeles is a leader in prostate cancer genetics at the ICR. She is a scientist as well as a clinician and has discovered 85 of the known 112 common variants associated with prostate cancer predisposition.

She is also is looking into young onset prostate cancer. She has a collection UK-wide of 10,000 young onset prostate cancer case samples (diagnosed at 60 years or less). She is looking to identify genetic alterations which are particularly found in young onset disease to enable ICR to use these in targeted screening and treatment trials.
