The Covent Garden Cancer Research Trust, which funds research into
combating prostate cancer, is building its first PR team. It is on the
hunt for a director of fundraising and communications to report to
Professor John Masters, head of research into the disease at University
College London's Institute of Urology, where the charity is based. The
decision to appoint a director follows the award of a pounds 500,000
government development grant. Masters said the field of prostate cancer
research was one of the most underfunded in the country.
