The Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project (MPCproject.org) is an patient-partnered online research study for men with advanced and/or metastatic prostate cancer. The goal of the project is to generate linked patient-reported, clinical, and genomic data that is de-identified to protect patient privacy and then shared widely with the research community to speed discoveries in prostate cancer.
Both diagnosis and survival rates for metastatic prostate cancer vary a great deal, particularly across racial and ethnic backgrounds, and researchers still do not fully understand why. The MPCproject hopes to enroll and learn from men across the US and Canada, and particularly alongside those who are underrepresented in research to better understand the basis for these differences.
