Dr. Sadar’s career in prostate cancer started at the BC Cancer Agency as a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Nicholas Bruchovsky’s laboratory. Her research has focused upon discovering new treatments for advanced prostate cancer. Dr. Sadar recently developed an experimental drug that shrinks prostate cancer tumours in the lab and is the first drug in the world that targets the “engine” of the tumour that causes the cancer to grow.
Dr. Sadar is the author of over 50 peer-reviewed publications, has served on more than 30 scientific panels, and has been a recipient of several prestigious awards, including the Terry Fox Young Investigator Award, Simon Fraser University Alumni Award for Academic Excellence. She is the first non-American to receive the Society of Women in Urology/Society of Basic Urologic Research Award for Excellence in Urologic Research.
