Molecular profiling analyses of prostate tumor tissue.
Investigators at the CRI (Steve Goodison, PhD) published an article in the journal Cancer Research describing their molecular profiling analyses of prostate tumor tissue. They found that the ‘normal’ cellular prostate material around localized prostate tumors has molecular changes that can indicate a nearby cancer. This is important because prostate needle biopsies sometimes miss the small cancer areas. With some further development, prostate biopsy material will be more informative, even if the cancer area is missed. The article was commented on in the journal Nature Reviews in Urology 2011.

Team Science Project award
Investigators at the CRI obtained a prestigious Team Science Project award
Investigators at the CRI obtained a prestigious Team Science Project award from the Florida DoH Biomedical Program. $1,350,000 was awarded by the James and Esther King Program for a 3-year multidisciplinary and multi-institutional program. Dr Charles J Rosser, MD, Dept. of Surgery at MDACCO and physician-scientist at the CRI, is the Principal Investigator. He supervises 2 projects at the CRI, and projects at the Mayo Clinic-Jacksonville, UCF, and the University of Miami. The overall goal of the combined projects is to improve the quality of life for patients with bladder cancer.
