Welcome to my blog on UroToday! I am a genitourinary medical oncologist at the University of California – San Francisco and specialize in the management of advanced prostate cancer. I maintain a specific focus on androgen and androgen receptor (AR) interactions in the tumor as well as in the patient. The science of testosterone and prostate cancer have both exploded in the last decade, and one of my goals is to help navigate these findings through both a scientific and a patient oriented perspective.
