The APCaRI Registry and Biorepository, established in 2014, facilitates the collection of clinical and patient-reported data plus biospecimens, to measure prostate cancer outcomes and support the development and clinical translation of innovative technologies. The ultimate goal is to better diagnose and predict outcomes for patients with prostate cancer.

Nanoparticle platforms are attractive for theranostic applications due to their multifunctionality and multivalency. Some of the most promising nano-scale scaffolds have been co-opted from nature, such as the cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV). What makes CPMV so promising? They are non-infectious and nontoxic to humans and safe for use in intravital imaging and drug delivery. Click on the link to read more.
We are pleased to present PROSPeCT, a user-friendly online clinical information system that offers an efficient way to query APCaRIs (www.APCaRI.ca) robust and expanding patient database to generate relevant and accurate results. Read the details in our article published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology – Clinical Cancer Informatics. Thank you to the Alberta Cancer Foundation and many others for their support.

This is a micro-review of an original research article from the Lewis research group that identified multiple novel metastasis-blocking targets, by using a whole genome screen and intravital imaging approach, that could be used as therapeutic targets to inhibit solid tumour cell motility.
