Robert Schnepp, MD, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine and serves as the William G. Woods, MD, Aflac Clinical Investigator Chair at Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. Dr. Schnepp is an attending physician in pediatric hematology/oncology at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Dr. Schnepp is a member of the Cancer Cell Biology Research Program at Winship. 


Dr. Schnepp undertook his MD/PhD training at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied the genetic cancer syndrome Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type I, investigating the role of the tumor suppressor menin. Next, he pursued further training in pediatrics at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, completing his residency and fellowship in Pediatric Hematology and Oncology. During that time, he investigated the mechanistic basis of aberrant oncogenic signaling in neuroblastoma, a tumor of the developing nervous system.


Dr. Schnepp's laboratory is interested in better understanding the cellular signaling networks that neuroblastoma and other pediatric solid malignancies engage to sustain the malignant phenotype, seeking to improve existing therapies and outcomes for patients.
