Pan Prostate Group
The Australian Prostate Centre is part of the Pan Prostate Cancer Group, a global group that collects and interrogates Whole Genome DNA Sequence & exome data generated worldwide from over 1800 men with prostate cancer, including men from different clinical categories & ethnicities
We are one of only three Centres in the world selected to collect and interrogate whole genome DNA sequencing of prostate cancer. Through our tissue bank we are providing over 60% of the global samples of advanced metastatic prostate cancer for analysis.
In 2017 we launched plans for the development of Australia’s first dedicated robotic surgery training facility, a flagship educational facility for robotics, innovation, education and simulation, the first of its kind in the country. With this development we are leaders in the advancements of technology use in medical practice.
