Dr. Peter Nelson's lab focuses on understanding the molecular, cellular and physiological events that lead to cancer initiation and progression. Dr. Nelson's work studies the genomic features of prostate cancer tumors with the goal of developing diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic strategies. Specifically, his research explores gene expression variability, the role of the androgen receptor pathway and the tumor microenvironment and their role in the response and resistance mechanisms to prostate cancer therapies.
Fred Hutch’s Dr. Pete Nelson studies prostate cancer, and he works to understand the molecular differences that distinguish one form of cancer from another. To arrange an interview with Dr. Nelson, please contact media relations at (206) 667-2210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
