Washington University School of Medicine
Joseph Ippolito, M.D.,Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University in Saint Louis School of Medicine. He is the MRI medical director for the Center for Clinical imaging Research and co-director for the Diagnostic Radiology Research Residency Program at Washington University. He is also a member of the NCCN Prostate Cancer Panel. He graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Biochemistry (summa cum laude) and joined the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at Washington University in Saint Louis. There, he received an M.D. and Ph.D. in molecular biophysics under the mentorship of Dr. Jeffrey Gordon where he developed new methods to identify metabolic signatures associated with poor prognosis in castrate-resistant neuroendocrine prostate cancer. He then entered the Diagnostic Radiology residency program at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in Saint Louis under the mentorship of David Piwnica-Worms M.D., Ph.D. followed by a clinical fellowship in body magnetic resonance imaging. He is currently funded as a Prostate Cancer Foundation Young Investigator where he is combining metabolomics and PET imaging to investigate unique metabolic pathways in neuroendocrine prostate cancer. He has also recently started a new NIH-funded research program to characterize the developmental origins of sex differences in cancer metabolism and obesity through novel mouse models, metabolomics, and PET imaging.
