Shawn E. Lupold, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Urology and Oncology and the Catherine Iola and J. Smith Michael Distinguished Chair in Urology. He serves as co-director of the Prostate Cancer Program for the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Lupold was trained as a Pre-IRTA fellow in the Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis at the National Cancer Institute and received his Ph.D. in Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He further trained in prostate cancer research as a postdoctoral fellow in the Brady Urological Research Institute at Johns Hopkins.
The focus of the Lupold laboratory is noncoding RNAs and RNA-based therapeutics. The laboratory applies cutting edge techniques to study the role of noncoding RNAs in prostate cancer biology and to develop new approaches for cancer diagnostics, prognostics, and therapy.
