A dedicated research center

The Shipley Center Lab at the Boston University Medical Campus will employ a team of dedicated researchers conducting groundbreaking projects.

An endowed professorship

The center’s efforts will be led by a world-class researcher, thanks to an endowed professorship included in Shipley’s gift to the University. The candidate may be full, associate, or assistant professor, enabling BU to select an individual working at the forefront of prostate cancer research.

An engaged community

The center plans to host a community group of men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer or have been identified as high-risk for the disease. This group will provide researchers with valuable insight into the patient experience with regard to specific issues and procedures.
