The primary focus of his laboratory is on identifying key pathways that predict response and resistance to treatment in genitourinary malignancies. This includes work in prostate cancer to develop liquid biopsy approaches that can guide precision-based therapeutic strategies in real time, as well as ongoing research in renal cell carcinoma to identify genomic signatures for risk stratification. Dr. Morgan also directs a number of clinical trials, primarily focused on understanding how cancer biomarkers can be utilized in order to provide more individualized management approaches. His research has received funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the Department of Defense, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the Alfredd A.
