Dr. Edward Schaeffer
Dr. Edward M. Schaeffer is the Edmund Andrews Professor and Chair of Urology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and the Chief of Urology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He is an internationally recognized physician-scientist in urologic oncology, with expertise in the management of prostate cancer. Dr. Schaeffer's laboratory specifically focuses on the molecular biology of locally aggressive prostate cancers and the impact of race on the biology of prostate cancer. His discoveries have greatly advanced the basic scientific understanding of prostate cancer and clinical care pathways, emphasizing at-risk populations, diagnosis, treatment outcomes, and the molecular biology of lethal disease. His work has been acknowledged as a Clinical Cancer Advance by American Society of Clinical Oncology.
