Research Interests

Dr. Shapiro conducts clinical and translational research. He is interested in how the kidney tumor microenvironment influences tumor behavior and how this information can be applied clinically. He is investigating how the spatial immune phenotype of kidney cancer can predict cancer specific outcomes. Additionally, he performs clinical research evaluating urologic cancer outcomes after surgical intervention. He also has a special interest in rare forms of kidney cancer and how to improve their diagnosis and treatment. His research on renal medullary carcinoma was selected for a scholar-in-training award by the American Academy of Cancer Research. Dr. Shapiro has published numerous research studies and abstracts on these topics.
