I now have a major program underway to study how males adapt to androgen deprivation. I am exploring this topic in various populations - from male-to-female transsexuals to advanced prostate cancer patients. This research program has led to invitations to talk to prostate cancer support groups around North America, and opportunities to collaborate with scientists in the United States, Canada, and Australia. The primary goal of this research is to develop ways to help prostate cancer patients and their partners adapt to the side effects of hormone therapy as well as develop better prostate cancer treatment programs in general.
