The Dean and Betty Gallo Prostate Center

Mission Statement
The Dean and Betty Gallo Prostate Cancer Center (GPCC) was established with the goal of eradicating prostate cancer and improving the lives of men at risk for the disease through research, treatment, education and prevention. GPCC was founded in the memory of Dean Gallo, a beloved New Jersey Congressman who died tragically of prostate cancer diagnosed at an advanced stage. GPCC unites a team of outstanding researchers and clinicians who are committed to high-quality basic research, translation of innovative research to the clinic, exceptional patient care, and improving public education and awareness of prostate cancer. GPCC is a center of excellence of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, which is the only NCI-designated cancer center in the state. GPCC efforts will be focused in four major areas: (i) Basic, Clinical and Translational Research, (ii) Comprehensive Patient Care, (iii) Epidemiology and Cancer Control, and (iv) Education and Outreach.
