Christopher Barbieri, MD, PhD is Associate Professor of Urology and Associate Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He is a urologic surgeon who takes care of patients with prostate cancer, and whose long-term goal is using molecular information to improve the care of prostate cancer patients. Dr. Barbieri received his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College and then attended Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, where he obtained both his MD and PhD degrees. He then completed both his Urology Residency and Urologic Oncology Fellowship at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Barbieri’s research focuses on improving molecular classification of prostate cancer and identifying novel drivers, defining the signaling pathways and biology underlying distinct subtypes of the disease, and exposing new therapeutic avenues. His work has led to recognition and awards from the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Urology Care Foundation, and Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, and his laboratory is funded by the National Cancer Institute.
