Advanced prostate cancer remains incurable and accounts for over 10,000 deaths in the UK each year. Mitochondria are the powerhouse or batteries of cells, and are increasingly thought to play a role in the development and progression of prostate cancer. As part of my PhD, I am currently looking into whether age-related accumulation of mitochondrial DNA mutations truly contributes to prostate cancer development. By better understanding the potential role mitochondrial DNA mutations have in prostate carcinogenesis, I hope to ultimately identify new targets for treatment of prostate cancer.
