Summary

 

Summary

Post-Doctoral Research Associate and Movember Fellow working in the lab of Prof Charlotte Bevan.

My research focuses on exploiting microRNAs (miRs) as treatment response and resistance biomarkers in advanced Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC). My work also investigates the use of miRs as therapeutics targets in prostate and breast cancers, and mechanisms by which biogenesis of miRs is perturbed in disease states. I am also interested in interactions between steroid hormone signaling and miRs.
