USUHSLogo_696

A new translational research fellowship has been established to continue the pioneering work of retired Army Col. (Dr.) David G. McLeod, who devoted nearly 50 years to prostate cancer research and treatment as a military urologist. He retired in 2016 as founding director of the Center for Prostate Disease Research (CPDR) at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS).

The Col. (Ret.) David G. McLeod Prostate Cancer Translational Research Fellowship was established through a partnership among USU, The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. (HJF), and BERG, a Boston-based biopharma company, which also provided funding for the fellowship.

The award will support an outstanding biomedical researcher to further accelerate the progress of an ongoing cooperative research and development agreement among USU’s CPDR, HJF and BERG.
