Jenny Shim, is an instructor in the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Shim serves as a pediatric hematologist and oncologist at Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Dr. Shim is a member of the Cell and Molecular Biology Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
Dr. Shim received her Medical Degree from Albany Medical College in Albany, New York. She completed her pediatric residency at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. She attended Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, to complete her fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology.
Dr. Shim's current research interests center on improving our understanding of the genetics and tumor microenvironment of high-risk neuroblastoma, and identifying targetable therapeutic agents that will improve long-term survival. She is investigating the Yes-Associated Protein (YAP)/Hippo pathway in high-risk and recurrent neuroblastoma under the mentorship of Kelly Goldsmith, MD. She will be delineating the YAP/Hippo pathway and its role in high-risk and recurrent neuroblastomas to develop a novel targeted therapy in combination with other potential targeted therapies, such as MEK or Bcl-2 inhibitors.
