High-content screening of small molecule inhibitors from nature that target prostate cancer metabolism

This project will screen and evaluate a library of 472 novel compounds that were isolated from Australian plants, fungi and marine organisms. Compounds that inhibit metabolic pathways critical for prostate cancer growth and survival will be chosen. This project will identify new inhibitors from nature, providing knowledge for future large-scale screens and helping develop new anticancer agents.
