giving men a better chance of beating prostate cancer 

  • We invite you to a celebration of 10 years’ successful Oncology research at the University of Surrey on 29th January 2016, 2.30pm at the University. Professor Pandha and his research team will present highlights of their achievements and outline their exciting plans for the future.  One of our proudest achievements of the last 18 years is the part we, and all our generous supporters, have played in the establishment and success of this team.  Places are limited, contact k.hammersley@surrey.ac.uk to secure your seat.  Read more
  • We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen as the Captain’s charity at Chobham and Hankley Common Golf Club, as well as the Lady Captain's charity at The Drift Golf Club in East Horsley.
  • Watch our new animated movie which explains the story behind our OctoBeardFest campaign, and why we need all men to ditch their razors and grow a beard this October to raise £100k 
  • Engrailed-2 (EN2) as a potential biomarker test for the diagnosis of prostate cancer:  Prof Pandha has ethical approval to commence a large clinical study (called PROCURE) which, if successful, we hope will allow us to move EN2 urine test into the clinic for routine clinical use. However, at the moment, EN2 is a research concept and not a test that can be ordered or purchased. We hope to complete the clinical trial in summer 2016.  Read more ...
  • Secretary of State for Health dug the first piece of turf for the new Urology Centre on Friday 2 October 2015. The Pint-a-Week Appeal is relaunched to raise £300,000 to kit out the Centre with state of the art equipment and furnishings to ensure our urology patients receive the best care possible.  We need 1,500 men to donate the cost of a pint of beer every week for a year - download leaflet
