Dr. Jingsong Zhang is a genitourinary oncologist at Moffitt Cancer Center and an assistant professor of oncology and internal medicine at the University of South Florida College of Medicine.  His primary interest is in developing new treatments for prostate cancer. As a member of the Moffitt experimental therapeutics program, Dr. Zhang is researching novel agents that might inhibit the repair pathway that allows cancer  cells to survive despite DNA damaging chemotherapy treatment.  He is a principal investigator in an American Society of Clinical Oncology grant to target DNA damage repair pathways in metastatic prostate cancer. Dr. Zhang received his medical degree from Peking Union Medical College in China, followed by a Ph.D. in pathology from the University of Southern California.  He served as a post-doctoral research fellow at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, before pursuing a residency in internal medicine at New York Downtown Hospital and fellowship in hematology/oncology at University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Zhang has been published in numerous medical journals and is board certified in both medical oncology and internal medicine.  He is fluent in English and Chinese.
