Our group is concerned with the identification of markers for therapeutic responsiveness, prognostic markers, and new markers of early prostate disease. We take a multidisciplinary approach that utilises expertise from a number of cancer researchers within and outside the Garvan, as well as clinicians and pathologists. Our research aims to identify genes and pathways whose expression changes can predict the development of aggressive life-threatening prostate cancer or resistance to chemotherapy used for the treatment of advanced stage prostate cancer.
