Dr. Rennie is a PhD research scientist. His current research is aimed at determining how androgens regulate gene transcription and how to use this knowledge to prevent progression to androgen independence in prostate cancers. He is also studying prostate-specific elements of gene promoters and working to develop lenti and herpes virus-based vectors as a targeting vehicle for delivery and prostate-specific expression of genes that can control or kill prostate tumour cells.
