Research Interests

Prostate Cancer


Dr Antonarakis received his medical degree in 2003 from the University Of Wales College Of Medicine, Cardiff. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in 2007, and a fellowship in Medical Oncology at the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center in 2010. During his fellowship, Dr Antonarakis received an ASCO Young Investigator Award for his translational clinical trial exploring itraconazole in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. He is currently a member of the Kimmel Cancer Center faculty as an Assistant Professor of Oncology.

His research focuses primarily on GU cancers, with a particular emphasis on prostate cancer, clinical trial development, and immunotherapy. As a clinical investigator with a priority on translational drug development, Dr Antonarakis uses prognostic models of prostate cancer progression to design more informative and personalized clinical trials in men with localized or early relapsed prostate cancer, including validating much needed clinical trial endpoints unique to prostate cancer. He currently serves as Principal Investigator on several clinical trials available to patients at the Kimmel Cancer Center. more

    Research Summary

    Dr. Antonarakis is an Assistant Professor of Oncology with an interest in genitourinary cancers and a particular focus on prostate cancer. He is an expert in the clinical management of patients with prostate cancer, kidney cancer, testicular cancer, bladder cancer, and other urological malignancies.

    His principal research activities consist of designing and conducting clinical trials that test investigational new drugs in the treatment of prostate cancer. More specifically, he is interested in expanding treatment options for men with early prostate cancer who experience a recurrence of their disease (evidenced only by a rising PSA level) after prostate surgery or radiotherapy. In addition, he is interested in testing immunological therapies (e.g. cancer vaccines) in the treatment of prostate cancer. As a clinical investigator with a priority on translational drug development, he plans to use prognostic models of prostate cancer progression to design more informative and tailored clinical trials, and to validate clinical trial endpoints that are unique to prostate cancer.
