Funds in action across UK
Where The Money Goes
Exciting news, your commitment to men’s health is making a difference to the future of research year round. Here’s how:

The Movember Foundation has made funded over £2 million to  researchers and clinicians at institutions up and down the UK, from Glasgow to London, from Nottingham to Southampton working with our official men’s health partner Prostate Cancer UK. This will help researchers bring innovative ideas and promising projects into the field of prostate cancer research.

These projects aim to help identify men at high risk of aggressive prostate cancer, to distinguishing between aggressive and non- aggressive forms of the disease, as well developing new treatments for advanced stages of the disease and helping improve the lives of men post-treatment, all contributing to fewer men dying of prostate cancer.
