Portrait of Sohrab Shah

Sohrab P. Shah, PhD

Chief, Computational Oncology, Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics
Professor Weill Cornell Medical College
Nicholls-Biondi Chair
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Sohrab Shah received a PhD in computer science from the University of British Columbia and developed his research program in computational biology at BC Cancer Agency and the University of British Columbia. His research focuses on developing and using computational methods to understand cancer evolution and treatment response. This encompasses advanced machine learning and Bayesian statistical methods to analyze and interpret large-scale datasets in cancer research. At MSK, Dr. Shah is building new and innovative capacity in computational methods across the spectrum of data-intensive research activity. This includes multimodal data integration such as genomics and imaging, high-resolution single-cell genomics, and transcriptomics. His translational focus lies in breast cancer and ovarian cancer, in which he has pioneered discovery of prognostic mutational signatures and large-scale studies of mutational landscapes and evolution of these cancers. Dr. Shah is a former Canada Research Chair, is a Komen Scholar, and holds the Nicholls-Biondi Endowed Chair in Computational Oncology at MSK.
