• I have extensive background in urologic cancer research with particular emphasis on cell signaling pathways and the use of molecular biological and biochemical techniques. My research interests include the identification and characterization of: 1) the role of androgen receptor signaling in castration and therapy resistance in prostate cancer, 2) the identification and characterization of novel targets and therapeutics in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), 3) the role of microRNAs in CRPC, and 4) the identification of novel therapeutic targets in bladder cancer. As an early career investigator with previous funding from the Department of Defense and the American Cancer Society, and current funding from the NCI, I laid the groundwork for an independent career by developing the technical expertise and collaborations required. In addition, I successfully administered the projects (e.g. staffing, research protections, budget), collaborated with other researchers, and produced peer-reviewed publications from each project.
