Discovery of New Cancer Biomarkers in Human Prostate Secretions

These researchers are using proteomic methods to identify proteins in prostate secretions taken from men who have a clinical biopsy of the prostate for clinical reasons. The secretions will be categorized based on biopsy results into two groups, those with cancer and those with no evidence of malignancy. The researchers use MSI resources to identify cancer-related proteins and cellular pathways and the function associated with those proteins.
