UCSF wins $9.45M grant to rethink prostate cancer treatment
San Francisco Business Times

The University of California, San Francisco won a $9.45 million federal grant aimed at revolutionizing the treatment of prostate cancer. The three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Defense is intended to move treatment of the cancer — the second most common form of the disease for U.S. men — more toward “clinical management” and precision medicine, and away from often unnecessary surgery or chemotherapy, while also helping to identify patients who need more aggressive treatments.
