Research Summary

My research focuses on prostate cancer biology and deciphering molecular mechanisms responsible for metastasis and DNA repair in prostate cancer with the goal to target these pathways. Our work has targeted androgen signaling, DNA repair, and metastatic pathways with novel therapeutics and combined it with existing therapeutic modalities to achieve a better therapeutic index. We have also deciphered the molecular function of NDRG1, a prostate metastasis suppressor that is involved in vesicular transport. Our work continues to identify novel molecular targets for prostate cancer therapy.
