Date:11/15/2007

S.T.A.R Program Brings Together Researchers from North America's Leading Prostate Cancer Centers

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Safeway Inc. and the Prostate Cancer Foundation today announced they will collectively donate $6 million to fund the S.T.A.R. Program (for Special Team Amplification of Research), an innovative research initiative focused on exploring the role of targeted heat in cancer therapy to treat prostate cancer, as well as other research strategies.

The S.T.A.R. Program is being launched for the first phase of research and development with a $3 million grant from the Safeway Foundation which raised the funds from its customers with donations made at checkout. The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) developed the collaborative research partnership and matched the initial funds dollar-for-dollar, for a total $6 million commitment. PCF is the world's largest philanthropic source of support for prostate cancer research and has funded ten of the individual scientists making up the S.T.A.R. North American team.

The program brings together an interdisciplinary team of investigators from multiple prominent cancer research centers. The team consists of investigators from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (program lead and coordinator), the University of Michigan Cancer Center and the University of British Columbia.

Additional expertise will be leveraged through the Prostate Cancer Foundation from the University of Washington, and from M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Emory University. This unique program will bring expertise throughout the cancer research and treatment communities to focus on a new approach to prostate cancer treatment. "Similar to the program that Robert Goddard put in place to make space flight a reality, everyone that has input will be invited to the table to be part of the solution," noted Jonathan Simons, M.D., CEO and President of the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
