Centre History

The Epworth Prostate Centre is one of three Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centres (APCRC’s) in Australia, each attached to a major hospital or medical research institute and all are funded by the federal Department of Health. Initially two APCRC’s (Epworth and Queensland) were established in 2009, with a five year commitment from the federal government. A new funding agreement in 2013 provided a four year commitment to fund three centres, being the Victorian and Queensland centres and a new centre In New South Wales. This year the three centres secured a further eighteen months of funding to transition the centres into another funding source.
