He aims to understand how and why changes to these genes lead to the spread of prostate cancer. These genes could be used to diagnose the severity of the disease and decide on the best treatment options for patients. For example, some gene changes may only be found in advanced prostate cancer tumours. Identifying these changes in patients could establish which patients need immediate treatment and which patients can avoid unnecessary treatment.
