From this plan, PCC has launched numerous new research programs based on the key pillars: Collaboration, Innovation and Talented People. Dr. Edmonds has also instituted a fair and transparent peer review process to steward and safeguard funds raised in support of prostate cancer research and to ensure that only the most promising, high quality research is funded.
Prior to joining PCC Dr. Edmonds held leadership roles at the Canadian Cancer Society, the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, the Canadian Cancer Research Alliance and the National Cancer Institute of Canada. Stuart holds a doctorate in pharmacology from Oxford University.”
