Our lab focuses on prostate cancer, specifically we are interested in the targeting of prostate cancer stem cells that lead to tumor regrowth following anti androgen receptor therapy. We are especially interested in the switch between oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis as an energy source in promoting growth. To this end we have developed specific small molecule inhibitors of glycolysis that are on track for phase 1 clinical trials.
