Dr. Bryce studies cancer genetics and novel therapeutics with a focus on personalized medicine. His clinical practice focuses on genitourinary malignancies (prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancers) and melanoma. He is Chair of the Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona. He is also the Medical Director of the Genomic Oncology Clinic at Mayo Clinic Arizona, where he utilizes whole genome sequencing of tumors to identify key driver mutations. This approach allows for precise targeting of a patient’s tumor, leading to a greater chance of remission. Dr. Bryce participates in community outreach to underserved populations and has in interest in health disparities research. He also conducts Phase I clinical trials of new cancer drugs.

Alan H. Bryce, MD, argues that the urologic community should expand genetic testing in prostate cancer patients. With expansive, quality data, urologists will be able to better recognize aberrations in patients’ genes. Also, this would be a step closer to gaining FDA approved biomarkers for prostate cancer.Read More
