Prostate cancer is a remarkably common disease that affects one out of every seven European and Turkish men in their lifetime. At all stages of this disease the androgen receptor (AR) is critical to the growth and proliferation of the cancer. Given the importance of this nuclear receptor in prostate cancer our laboratory is focused on better understanding the mechanisms of this complex transcription factor. We are particularly interested in developing new experimental approaches that can delineate the molecular underpinning of AR mediated transcription. We are funded by several national and international funding bodies.
I currently hold a Newton Advanced Fellowship in collaboration with Dr. Akane Kawamura from the University Oxford. We are working to determine the role of a critical lysine demethylase in advanced castrate resistant prostate cancer.
