              • Vishal Kothari, PhD
                Research Assistant Professor of Urology, Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine
                Biography
                  The overall theme of my research is to identify, characterize and target the genes that help in the progression of aggressive prostate cancers. During my postdoctoral fellowship, I developed novel approaches to identify outlier kinases in breast and pancreatic cancer and studied the role of these kinases in oncogenic progression. I continued to apply this novel matrix to identify novel biomarkers to distinguish indolent from aggressive prostate cancer and to interrogate therapeutic targets in advanced prostate cancer. Apart from identifying biomarkers and therapeutic targets, I also have an expertise in delineating oncogenic signaling and resistance mechanisms and carry out translational research. My goal is to delineate the molecular and biological differences between the prostate cancers in African-American and Caucasian men, to help progress the field towards personalized medicine.

After doing post-doctoral work first at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and then at the University of California, Irvine, he got his first faculty position at Wayne State University in 1985. In 1996 he joined the Mayo Clinic as a full Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology. His laboratory studies the common fragile sites which are regions of profound genomic instability that are found in all individuals. His laboratory also studies the various ways that human papillomavirus is involved in the generation of different cancers. Dr. Smith is also the Chairman of the Technology Assessment Group for the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine. The role of this group is to evaluate new technologies that could have a profound impact on basic research and its' clinical translation. The most exciting technology that has the greatest potential to change both research and clinical practice is next generation sequencing and Dr. Smith and his group have been using this technology to answer scientific questions. The advances in next generation sequencing over the past 10 years have been nothing short of incredible and it is now possible to generate terrabases of DNA sequence in a single run of a next generation sequencer. This technology can be utilized in a number of ways from characterizing just a few genes all the way to whole genome sequencing.
