Research

One of the major challenges for clinical management of prostate cancer is lack of effective therapeutic options for metastatic prostate cancer. Suleman's research focuses on dissecting the molecular networks associated with development of therapeutic resistance for therapeutic benefit. He utilizes both in vitro cell culture and in vivo preclinical animal models to study these. His research focuses on delineating the molecular mechanisms of radioresistance in prostate cancer and investigating the use of Nexrutine® (a herbal extract of Phellodendron amurense) as a neoadjuvant for radiation therapy.
