Fund a better mask
PCF funded Young Investigator Dr. James Byrne, who has both an oncology and engineering background, is part of team of scientists at MIT who have rapidly redeployed their skills to build a better mask for COVID-19, fast. Dr. Byrne and team have developed a way to cheaply mass produce masks that are not only as good as N95 masks, but BETTER – they can be re-sterilized over and over again by basic methods. The manufacturing price per mask could be as little as $1 each. The masks are molded with the same material used in anesthesia masks.
Many vs Cancer
More than 14 million men worldwide are living with prostate cancer, and every year more than 300,000 lose their fight. These are our fathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers and friends. With an estimated one in nine men diagnosed in their lifetime, we all know someone who has been impacted by this disease. Ongoing advances in precision medicine mean we are closer than ever to a cure, but we need the power of The Many to defeat prostate cancer once and for all.
