Scientists have identified a key gene - eIF4G1 - that shows grade and stage specific upregulation in prostate cancer and is overexpressed and/or amplified in the majority of cases of CRPC.
The School of Graduate Studies helps to train future scientists and our Centers of Excellence (Cardiovascular, Brain, Rheumatology and Cancer) further elevate our institution's research portfolio. The Office of Reseach helps support these endeavors and is comprised of the Clinical Trials Office, the Office of Sponsored Programs and Technology Transfer, Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) and the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
