Dr. Rennie featured in Prostate Cancer Canada's January 2019 blog

January's Prostate Cancer Canada blog features an interview with Dr. Paul Rennie titled From idea to possibility: Moving research from the lab to patient care.

Dr. Rennie discusses the development of a novel treatment for advanced prostate cancer, which featured in our News section in 2015 and 2017 (articles include links to VCHRI News, the Vancouver Sun and a UBC News video).

Dr. Stuart Edmonds, VP Research, Health Promotion and Survivorship at Prostate Cancer Canada, is quoted as saying, “This is the type of research that is meeting a critical gap, and giving renewed hope to men living with prostate cancer, and especially those who need more options.”

Dedicated Prostate Cancer Canada supporters were instrumental in supporting this important project and propelling it forward. It is now on the cusp of helping Canadian men facing aggressive forms of prostate cancer and shows how funding innovative research can lead to real change.

Our Centre thanks everyone who has enabled this groundbreaking work, including donors, granting agencies, our Centre's researchers, trainees and support staff, and our host institutes VCHRI, VGH, and UBC.
