Research title: Molecular characterization of RNAseq identified changes in TCR signaling in prostate cancer disease

Research Summary

My PhD research looks at characterising the molecular changes occurring during the transition from hormone-sensitive to castrate-resistant prostate cancer, with a focus on the role of phosphodiesterases as the disease progresses.
