Research & Clinical Interests

Dr. Schiewer’s research is focused on understanding mechanisms of disease progression and developing novel treatment strategies for genitourinary malignancies (prostate, bladder). Specifically, he is interested in examining transcriptional regulation by oncogenic transcription factors and hormone receptors; exploring therapeutic targeting of DNA repair enzymes; and understanding cancer-associated cell cycle derangement.
