Dr. Shaw joined the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Cancer & Blood Disorders Institute in August 2016 as deputy director and currently also serves as the institute’s interim director.

Dr. Shaw is recognized nationally as a leader in the areas of adolescent and young oncology (AYA). He is founding member of the Consortium of Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Centers and helped develop internally recognized standards for care of this population. He is expanding the AYA program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s to enhance continuity of care into adulthood through multidisciplinary collaboration with physicians at Moffitt Cancer Center. He will also support the institute’s fertility preservation program, which helps pediatric cancer and bone marrow transplant survivors enjoy optimal health and the opportunity to become parents in their adult years.
Dr. Shaw previously was clinical director of oncology and director of the hematology/oncology clinic at the institute from Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, where he established one of the nation’s first AYA programs, providing care for teens ages 15 to 22. He also served as associate professor of pediatrics, division of pediatric hematology/oncology and bone marrow transplant, at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Shaw developed a formal collaboration with clinicians at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute to enhance continuity of care into the adult years, and with the university’s Magee Women’s Hospital to establish a Fertility in Oncology program. He has presented at national and international oncology meetings, authored numerous papers and case reports published in peer-reviewed journals, and is an associate editor of the Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology.
