Project Description

Modern drugs for advanced prostate cancer are based on androgen blockade, starving the tumour of hormones. However, the tumour escapes this treatment and metastatic disease arises. In this project we will study the genomic and functional differences between individual prostate cancer metastases as they adapt to contemporary treatments. We aim to identify new strategies to halt the growth of advanced metastatic prostate cancer.
