About Antonina Mitrofanova
  • Systems biology is a computational-based inter-disciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems.
  • Dr. Mitrofanova intends to employ systems biology to investigate gene expression regulators of aggressive prostate cancer.
  • These investigations should lead to the discovery of treatment targets for the root causes of aggressive disease.

What this means for patients: This systems biology approach to understanding the complexity of aggressive prostate cancer may result in the identification and validation of new treatments.
