Ashley E. Ross, MD, PhD, Associate professor of Urology, Oncology and Pathology, was born in Buffalo New York and graduated from The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine with graduate and medical degrees. He joined the faculty after completing his general surgery and urology training at Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Ross has an active clinical practice which focuses on prostate cancer across the spectrum of the disease. He specializes in prostate cancer active surveillance, robotic and open surgical approaches for the treatment of disease, multi-disciplinary approaches to aggressive prostate cancer, and the management of recurrent disease after radiation therapy. Dr. Ross is an active member of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, and leads multiple clinical trials exploring novel therapeutic and diagnostic approaches to prostate cancer.

In addition, Dr. Ross is a fully and an expert on prostate carcinogenesis. His laboratory currently investigates the molecular mechanisms that drive prostate cancer and is developing and trialing novel therapies and approaches to aggressive disease. Further, his team is striving to develop and evaluate molecular tests which may guide the best diagnostic and treatment selection for each individual patient.
