The Work We Fund

Funded projects
Men's Health Partners
We work closely with our global men's health partners to ensure collaboration, transparency and accountability for every project we fund. We monitor this through report cards which detail what we seek to achieve, key measures and the impact.
Prostate Cancer
"Together with the brightest minds in research, we aim to achieve significant breakthroughs in the hope of beating prostate cancer. Our disruptive funding approach identifies revolutionary ways to accelerate health outcomes by creating strong, global collaborative teams." Dr. Colleen Nelson, Global Scientific Chair.
Men's Health
"One Mo can help change the face of men’s health through the powerful conversations created globally during Movember. Men have the chance to confidently discuss men’s health with people around them, resulting in men taking action early, helping change and save lives." Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programmes
Mental health and suicide prevention
“The number of men taking their own lives around the world is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Movember is working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to seek help when they’re struggling.”
Brendan Maher, Global Director, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
Testicular Cancer
“Despite being the 2nd most common cancer in young men, testicular cancer is often a forgotten cancer due to early detection and treatment. Our projects look at underinvested areas such as improving access to healthcare services and treatment options for relapse” Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programmes.

About the project

As a collaboration between the Australian Government and the Movember Foundation, the Prostate Cancer Research Alliance Program was launched in October 2018. This initiative aims to fund large-scale, collaborative teams with high-quality research proposals that are likely to support the "bench-to-beside" translation of research findings into clinical practice.

After a competitive, peer-reviewed process, three research teams began their research in 2019 and the all programs are expected to be completed by 2024. The three research teams are:
(1) ENZA-p team led by Professor Louise Emmett at the St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney;
(2) PRECEPT team led by Professor Niall Corcoran at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne; and
(3) UpFrontPSMA team led by Professor Michael Hofman and Associate Professor Arun Azad at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne.
