Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis in men. With more than 160,000 new cases each year in the United States, it remains the second-leading cause of male cancer death in the US. This collaborative bench-to-bed project will use next-generation sequencing to increase the precision and effectiveness of therapy for patients. By integrating state-of-the-art bioinformatic and genomic analysis of patients enrolled in Phase 2 trials, this project expects to significantly improve outcomes by providing molecular-tailored treatments for individuals with this disease.
