  Prof I McEwan, Prof H M Wilson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and is a leading cause of cancer related death. The androgen receptor is important for the development and function of the prostate gland and is a driver of prostate cancer progression and metastasis.
