Research Interests
His research focus is on signal transduction and gene expression mechanisms relevant to cancer development, progression, metastasis, and therapeutic resistance in disease models, particularly prostate cancer, which is a leading causes of cancer deaths among men in the United States and Western countries. Currently, my laboratory studies the Hippo-YAP-AR signaling axis to understand the molecular mechanisms of prostate cancer progression, metastasis and acquired resistance. His laboratory utilizes variety of complementary approaches including proteomics, genomics and bioinformatics as well cell cultures including 3D cultures, animal models and clinical samples to carry out the proposed research.
