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.
