A prostate cancer clinical trials center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC). Recognizing that too few men have participated in clinical trials in the past, this Center will make state-of-the-art research trials available to deserving military health beneficiaries. The Center is open to all beneficiaries worldwide.
The only free-standing prostate cancer research center in the U.S. This 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art basic science laboratory facility is attracting the best and brightest to study the disease. Using blood and tissues collected from volunteering military beneficiaries, the CPDR laboratory has amassed a large bank of prostate cancer specimens that are serving to unravel the genetics of the disease.
The largest, most comprehensive prostate cancer database in the United States. Involving the Army, Air Force, and Navy at multiple military medical centers, the program is a model for interservice cooperation and research collaboration. With approximately 26,000 prostate cancer survivors enrolled to date, the CPDR database is rapidly becoming a national resource.
