A native of Galway, Ireland, Gary joined the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in 2014 to establish a university-wide bioinformatics program as Professor of Medicine in the Division of Nephrology and the Center for Genomic Medicine, Director of Bioinformatics. Mr. Hardiman has a broad background in genomics, genomics technologies, pharmacogenomics, molecular biology and bioinformatics. His research over the past 20 years in biotech and academic settings has employed functional and comparative genomics and systems biology approaches to uncover genetic targets in the context of inflammation, cancer, diabetes, cardiac disease, cystic fibrosis and HIV infection. A major research focus of his has been the development of diagnostics tools to study the effects of endocrine disruption in sentinel aquatic species.

Prostate cancer, racial disparities and Vitamin D3

By Gary Hardiman on Nov 16, 2016 10:18:00 AM

Transcriptome differences in prostate cancer highlight racial disparities. 

African-American and European-American men with prostate cancer exhibit significantly different expression of genes associated with immune response and inflammation.

Systems-level, RNA analyses support the concept that inflammatory processes may contribute to racial disparities in disease progression and that vitamin D3 supplementation can modulate pro-inflammatory transcripts.
