Asim B. Abdel-Mageed, DVM, MS, Ph.D.

Research Interests

Dr. Abdel-Mageed’s research interest focuses on identifying molecular determinants of prostate cancer progression, with special emphasis on health disparity. One approach involves genetic engineering and selective delivery of stem cells to target “intracrine” production of androgens at metastatic sites. In another study, Dr. Abdel-Mageed laboratory is exploring the role of adipose stem cells in promoting clonal expansion of metastasis through tumor derived exRNA-containing tumor derived exRNA-containing exosomes by high throughput screening (More details on this grant can be retrieved from the NIH press release.
