Dr. Shu’s research primarily focuses on identifying novel genetic and molecular markers for cancer risk, with the goal of better understanding tumorigenesis and providing novel tools for risk assessment. Dr. Shu is actively participating in multiple international consortia including the Breast Cancer Association Consortium, the Asia Breast Cancer Consortium, the Genetics and Epidemiology of Colorectal Cancer Consortium. Dr. Shu is an NCI R00 award recipient and his recent work using integrated omics approaches provides new insights into the etiology of colorectal cancer. He is also an active investigator in three large prospective cohorts, the Shanghai Women’s Health Study (SWHS), the Shanghai Men’s Health Study (SMHS), and the Southern Community Cohort Study (SCCS), leading several prospective metabolomics and proteomics projects to uncover novel risk biomarkers for colorectal, pancreatic, and gastric cancer. After joining the department in 2020, Dr. Shu has also extended his interest to patient-oriented research such as identifying genetic risk factors for contralateral breast cancer and intrinsic subtypes of breast cancer.
Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.
MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
Xiang Shu discloses the following relationships and financial interests:
