Role of Nuclear Pore-Regulated Mechanisms in Prostate Cancer Aggressiveness

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

PROJECT NARRATIVE Tumor cells display nuclear pore and chromosomal defects, however, their specific mechanistic contribution to cancer progression is ill-defined. To enable the dissection of these intricate biological processes and their contribution to the aggressiveness of prostate cancer, our laboratory interrogates in vitro and in vivo patient- derived experimental models via transcriptomic, high-resolution live imaging microscopy, biochemistry and genetic approaches combined with publicly available patient datasets evaluation and patient tumor tissue validation. Our studies aim to identify novel actionable nuclear pore-regulated mechanisms in lethal prostate cancer that may benefit the clinical management of therapy refractory disease.
