Student Spotlight

Racial Disparities in Prostate Cancer Risk—Incidence of and mortality from prostate cancer have been linked to both obesity and diabetes. Fourth-year medical student Denzel Zhu and third-year medical students Michelle Toker and William Shyr investigated whether this accounted for the higher risk of more aggressive cancer and poorer prognosis of prostate cancer among non-Hispanic, Black and Hispanic patients from the Bronx population. In reviewing clinical and demographic data of Hispanic and non-Hispanic, Black patients who had undergone surgery for prostate cancer, the trio found that diabetes, and particularly obesity, contributed to higher risk of aggressive prostate cancer, indicating that these risk factors are generalizable across racial and ethnic groups. They reported their findings in Clinical and Genitourinary Cancer. Kara Watts, M.D., and Ilir Agalliu, M.D., Sc.D., served as mentors to the students on the project. Mr. Zhu has matched into the urology residency program at University of Rochester Medical Center; Dr. Watts is associate professor of urology; and Dr. Agalliu is associate professor of epidemiology & population health and of urology.
