The Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project is a new initiative being coordinated by the Broad Institute. Initially, it will allow any patient in North America with advanced or metastatic prostate cancer to contribute his personal genetic, genomic, and clinical data to the development of the world's most comprehensive database on advanced prostate cancer permitting the entire prostate cancer research community access this database and accelerate discoveries related to the management of advanced prostate cancer.

Lyme disease is a multi-systemic illness caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi, a complex spirochete. If left untreated, it can become a severely debilitating disease affecting the central nervous system, joints, and multiple organs, including heart and brain. The CDC estimates over 300,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with Lyme disease each year. The Global Lyme Alliance is pleased to present Highlights from ILADS 18th Annual Scientific Conference.
