About Dr. Jo Ishizawa
Dr. Ishizawa's first training and faculty appointment was in Japan, where he received his MD and PhD degrees. From 2004 to 2007, he worked at Keio University Hospital as an intern and resident followed by a one year training as clinical fellow in the Department of Hematology. In 2007, Dr. Ishizawa entered the PhD program and conducted his thesis work on investigating the role of the cell cycle regulator Cdh1 in the hematopoietic system and a mouse lymphoma model at Professor Hideyuki Saya's laboratory at Keio University. After receiving his PhD degree in 2011, Dr. Ishizawa moved back to clinical service work at an attending physician for two years while continuing his laboratory work as a physician scientist. In April 2013, Dr. Ishizawa joined MD Anderson as a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Dr. Michael Andreeff. Based on several translational research achievements on leukemia and lymphoma (e.g., pre-clinical study of MDM2 inhibition, correlative studies in clinical trials in MDM2 inhibitors, pre-clinical studies on organellar unfolded protein response), Dr. Ishizawa was promoted to Instructor in the Department of Leukemia in January 2017. Dr. Ishizawa's vision is to develop optimally effective treatments that will cure patients with hematological malignancies. To this end, his mission is to become an independent translational cancer researcher who is able to merge basic and clinical science. In this aspect, Dr. Ishizawa's research goal is to create novel therapeutic rationale to eliminate acute leukemia and aggressive lymphomas, currently focusing on mitochondrial biology and mechanisms of apoptosis in leukemia and lymphoma.
