Research interests in this laboratory focus on molecular mechanisms of hormone action via nuclear receptors and of cytoskeletal associated proteins on proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis of normal and cancerous prostate cells. Research also emphasizes the study of mechanisms by which naturally occurring and/or synthetic compounds effect the chemoprevention and/or chemotherapy of prostate cancer. Lastly, through molecular biology and proteomic approaches, potentially useful genes will be discovered and used as tools for the detection and treatment of prostate cancer.
