Scott W. Lowe

Scott W. Lowe is Chair of the Cancer Biology and Genetics Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City and an Investigator for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Dr. Lowe received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He initiated his independent research at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, where his group made important contributions to our understanding of the p53 tumor suppressor network, as well as the processes of multi-step carcinogenesis, cellular senescence, and tumor-cell drug resistance. At MSKCC, his laboratory applies mouse models, genetics, and genomics in a coordinated manner to understand the interplay between tumor cells and their environment. These efforts have revealed fundamental insights into cancer evolution, tumor-cell immune surveillance, and the mechanisms by which inflammation promotes tumorigenesis, as well as therapeutic strategies to harness senescence biology for treating cancer or age-associated tissue decline. Dr. Lowe’s work has been recognized by several awards, including a Sidney Kimmel Scholar Award, a Rita Allen Scholar Award, the Outstanding Investigator Award and G.H.A. Clowes Award from the American Association for Cancer Research, the Paul Marks Prize, and the Alfred G. Knudsen Award from the NIH. He has also been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, and the National Academy of Medicine and is a Fellow of the American Association for Cancer Research.
