Coordinating Federal Research (PC-CARE Act)

With a multitude of federal agencies conducting prostate cancer research, it is vital that everyone is working together to ensure that funding is used in the most efficient way possible.


The Prostate Cancer Community Assistance, Research and Education Act of 2023, or the PC-CARE Act, would establish a committee to monitor, coordinate, and evaluate the activities of all federal agencies involved in prostate cancer research programs. These agencies range from the National Institutes of Health to the Department of Defense. It also brings in smaller agencies, such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Vitally, it gives the private sector a seat at the table. Researchers, patients, clinicians, patient advocates and professional medical societies will all be working with the federal government to ensure that research gaps are being filled and prioritizing the most critical work.
