Biography :

Dr Ashish M. Kamat is a Professor (Tenure) of Urology and Director of Urologic Oncology Fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center and a graduate of the AUA Leadership Program.

Dr Kamat’s expertise is in the multidisciplinary management of urologic cancers with an emphasis on bladder and prostate cancer, organ-sparing therapies, minimally invasive techniques, and orthotopic bladder substitution (neobladder). While he is a busy surgeon, he maintains an active research portfolio to improve the care of patients. Dr Kamat’s efforts are directed towards identifying predictors of response to therapy -, especially immunotherapy - as the first step towards personalized cancer therapeutics. A major focus of his laboratory research is to develop novel treatments for bladder cancer and identify resistance mechanisms and ways to overcome them. He serves as project PI on the MD Anderson Cancer Center GU (Bladder) SPORE.

Dr Kamat is Co-President, International Bladder Cancer Network, Chair, Bladder Cancer Think Tank (2015), Chair, Bladder Cancer Task Force for SITC, actively participates in various global urologic efforts, and serves on the board of regional and national societies for Urology.
