Prostate Cancer

Our prostate program is an NIH-recognized and funded consortium of cohesive investigators and clinicians. We see patients at UW Medicine and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and offer cancer screenings, personalized treatment strategies and cutting-edge clinical trials.

One of our major strengths is identification of risk assessment in the progression of prostate cancer to highly aggressive forms. We also have a large program in studying the biology of these tumors and developing novel therapies.
