The Prostate Cancer Foundation has established the 2015 Jerry WeintraubPCF Young Investigator Award.

This prestigious 3-year award will be bestowed upon an early career scientist whose work embodies Jerry’s creative and entrepreneurial spirit, his willingness to take risks, and his “never say no” approach to accomplishing the unimaginable.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation wishes to celebrate the life and legacy of their dear friend and honorary board member Jerry Weintraub, who passed away on July 6, 2015. His larger than life persona was always evident in his considerable accomplishments as a producer, manager and leader in the arts and entertainment industry.

This award perpetuates Jerry’s passion for prostate cancer cures into the next generation of the very best scientific minds across the globe. Jerry Weintraub was a genius in spotting talent in music, movies and production. His genius is reflected in PCF’s ability to spot the most innovative research projects with the greatest potential to save lives.

As an honorary member of the PCF Board of Directors, Jerry was a beloved attendee at many PCF events over the years. He was an avid participant in tennis events, annually opening up his award winning home for amateur and professional players, donors, guests and board members during the Indian Wells Tournament. His generous efforts helped create a platform that has resulted in more than $2 million raised for prostate cancer research.
