Targeting Neuropilin-1 to inhibit the adaptive response to androgen deprivation

This project will study the function of a protein in prostate cancer which is associated with metastasis and cancer recurrence after androgen-deprivation therapy and chemotherapy in patients. The results may lead to an improved ability to control the growth of metastatic prostate cancer and sensitise them to chemotherapy.
