Li-Shu Wang, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Medicine
Dr. Li-Shu Wang is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). Her research interests are in the fields of chemical carcinogenesis and cancer chemoprevention.
Dr. Wang received her PhD in Veterinary Biosciences from Ohio State University where her research was focused on illustrating the mechanisms of conjugated linoleic acid, naturally occurring compounds, in the prevention of breast cancers. Afterward, she continued involved in cancer prevention research as a post-doctoral fellow and research scientist at the same university. During her post-doctoral training, her research was focused on the prevention of gastrointestinal cancers using berries. Her research is documented in more than 35 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters.
Dr. Wang has received numerous awards including scholar-in-training award of American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) prevention meeting, and IAMS research funds. She is a reviewer for several publications including but not limited to Cancer Research, Clinical Cancer Research, Cancer Epidemiology, and Biomarkers & Prevention.
