Grayhack Professor of Urological Research, Vice Chair for Research, and Professor of Urology and Pathology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago. Dr. Abdulkadir’s research program is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms that drive cancer initiation, progression and recurrence with the ultimate goal of developing therapies that interfere with these processes. His work has particularly focused on prostate cancer. Dr. Abdulkadir has a strong interest in genomics and gene regulation; oncogenic kinases as molecular therapeutic targets; as well as the use of in vivo lineage tracing to define the fates of specific cell populations in tumorigenesis. His work has shed light on the cellular origins of prostate cancer, cancer gene cooperation in tumorigenesis, and the development of novel therapeutic agents currently in preclinical and clinical development.[Shorten text]
