Robert Wenchen Hsieh
Student, Stem Cell Bio Regenerative Med Institute
Bio Robert W. Hsieh, M.D. Ph.D. is a medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney (renal) cancer and testicular cancer as a member of Stanford's multi-disciplinary Urologic Cancer Program. Dr. Hsieh obtained his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Chicago (Pritzker School of Medicine) and subsequently came to Stanford to complete his Internal Medicine residency and Hematology and Oncology fellowship training (with a clinical focus on genitourinary cancers).
Dr. Hsieh is also involved in laboratory-based research at Stanford's Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine with a particular interest in hormonal and targeted therapies. He has significant experience in pre-clinical cancer target/drug identification and validation. His past experiences include the development of novel protein-protein interaction assays, high-throughput small molecule screening and x-ray crystallography. His current research utilizes genetic techniques and unique organoid and patient derived xenograft mouse models to identify novel therapeutic targets for challenging cancers such as triple-negative breast cancer.
