About Abhishek Srivastava

Dr. Srivastava is studying malignant cells from different regions of the prostate to analyze their genetic relationships with the aim to answer the following questions.

Is one patient’s prostate cancer made up of a single type that evolves into multiple genetic types or do multiple genetic changes exist in primary prostate cancer?

Does highly malignant disease originate in the prostate or does it evolve during the metastatic process?

Is there a specific cell lineage in a tumor that correlates to aggressive disease?

Dr. Srivastava’s research will provide insight into the evolution of prostate cancer from the single cancerous cell to aggressive, malignant disease. These studies will inform prostate cancer diagnostics, prognostics and improved treatment.
