Academic Honors

Young Physician-Scientist Award—The American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) has awarded a 2020 Young Physician-Scientist Award to Dr. Niraj Shenoy. Toward supporting the scientific efforts, educational needs, and clinical aspirations of physician-scientists to improve health, the ASCI recognizes individuals who are early in their first faculty appointment and have made notable achievements in their research. As a principal investigator, Dr. Shenoy’s research interests range from the most basic—interactions between driver pathways, epigenomics (DNA methylation), metabolism, and immune evasion—to early-phase cancer clinical trials. He has been first or senior author on 26 peer-reviewed articles (several in high-impact journals) and has presented his work at many national and international meetings. His knowledge and skills inform his practice as an attending physician in medical oncology at Montefiore. Dr. Shenoy is assistant professor of medicine at Einstein and clinical oncologist in genitourinary malignancies at Montefiore, with a focus on kidney cancer.
