From Mice to Men:
Translating Discoveries in Prostate Cancer Research Into Improved Patient Care

Dr. Gleave's current research focuses on the study of cellular and molecular mechanisms that mediate progression of prostate cancer to its lethal stage of androgen independence, and on the use of this information to develop integrated multi-modality therapies that specifically target these mechanisms. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers, and currently has more that $20M in peer reviewed funding. He is a recipient of many awards, most recently the prestigious NCIC William Rawles Award for contributions to cancer control in Canada. As Founder and CSO of OncoGenex, he is familiar with role of industry in translating preclinical observations into the clinic. He is active in clinical trials across Canada and is Chairman of the National Cancer Institute of Canada GU Clinical Trials Group, and Chairman of the Canadian Uro-Oncology Group.
