About
Advances in therapeutics have led to improvements in both survival and quality of life for men with advanced or metastatic prostate cancer. Get the latest information about how physicians can now more clearly detect where the prostate cancer has traveled in the body, prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-directed therapies, immunotherapies, and other targeted therapies and promising novel agents for patients.

Matthew Dallos, MD
Dr. Matthew Dallos is a medical oncologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center who specializes in the treatment of prostate cancer. He is an expert in prostate cancer immunotherapy and his research focuses on harnessing the immune system for the treatment of both localized and metastatic disease. He previously discovered several key mechanisms in which androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) modulates the immune system. These findings are now being translated into a number of ongoing innovative clinical trials that he leads as principle investigator. His ultimate goal is to improve both the quality of life and the chance for cure for men living with prostate cancer.

Dr. Dallos received his bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from Brown University. He earned his MD with distinction in research from Northwestern University where he was also a HHMI Research Scholar. He completed his internship and resident at NYU followed by medical oncology fellowship at Columbia University. He has received numerous awards including an ASCO Young Investigator Award, PCF Young Investigator Award and PCF/Movember Challenge Award.

Michael Morris, MD
Dr. Morris is a prostate cancer specialist, clinical investigator, and the Section Head of Prostate Cancer of the Genitourinary Oncology Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. He earned his medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and performed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. He then completed his medical oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where he was the Chief Fellow as well.

Dr. Morris has led numerous clinical trials, but he has a particular research focus on targeted therapy for prostate cancer, especially those that bridge the fields of Medical Oncology and Nuclear Medicine. In the field of therapeutics, he has focused on radioimmunotherapy and other radio-conjugates, bone directed therapy, and other targeted therapies. In the field of diagnostics, he has a keen research interest in developing novel imaging technologies for metastatic prostate cancer and in developing novel imaging biomarkers. He has been a co-developer of the Prostate Cancer Working Group 2 and 3 Consensus Criteria, and novel prostate-specific imaging technologies such as FDHT PET and PSMA-directed PET imaging.

In addition, he is the Medical Director of the Prostate Cancer Clinical Consortium, and chairs the GU Committee of the Alliance for Oncology Trials in Oncology, an NCI-funded cooperative group for the conduct of cancer clinical trials.
