I am interested in several prostate cancer enriched proteins previously identified and characterized in our lab, such as KLK4, STAMP1 and STAMP2. My focus is on the molecular mechanisms of how these proteins are involved in prostate cancer progression, as well as their potential role in adipocyte biology.
