Furic Laboratory

Prostate Cancer Research

Welcome to the Furic Lab

Approximately 1 in 8 cancer related-deaths in Australian males is due to prostate cancer. Our lab uses biochemical and molecular biology approaches to gain a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms responsible for prostate cancer progression.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Cancer Program
and the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology.

Our research

Our research program is centred on survival signalling in prostate cancer cells. Dr Furic is an expert in mouse models of prostate cancer and cellular signalling regulating mRNA translation initiation and RNA stability. Current research projects are focussed on the identification of new combination therapies targeting protein synthesis, estrogen signalling and cell motility and invasion.
