Prostate Cancer: Pursuing a cure through prevention and personalized care

Dr. Peter Nelson is an expert in identifying genes and proteins linked to the early development and spread of prostate cancer. His lab focuses on understanding the molecular basis of cancer progression to create better detection strategies and more effective, personalized therapies. In this presentation, Dr. Nelson will explain inherited predisposition to prostate cancer and its genetic links to other cancers such as those of the breast, ovary, colon and pancreas. Join us to find out how Dr. Nelson and his team are on the path to offering hope and pursuing a cure by preventing prostate cancer in the first place.
