About Dr. Wyatt

Dr. Wyatt’s is the Correlative Sciences Committee Chair for the CCTG GU disease site committee and his research is focused on metastatic genitourinary cancers, including prostate and bladder cancer. To enable genomic profiling of these cancers, his team has pioneered methods for circulating tumour DNA analysis of prostate cancer from minimally invasive blood samples, developed targeted sequencing approaches, built custom bioinformatic software and amassed important clinical data from men with metastatic prostate cancer, enabling comparison of genomic alterations with treatment outcomes. He leads the DNA research for the IND234 clinical trial which, uses liquid biopsy technology to screen for genomic markers in prostate cancer patients.
