Research Summary

Yiwey Shieh, MD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Shieh is a general internist and clinical epidemiologist interested in improving the delivery of breast cancer screening and prevention through the use of risk stratification tools. His current work uses clinical risk factors, breast density, and genetic variants to refine individualized risk assessment, especially as it pertains to disease biology. As a clinician-investigator, he is particularly interested in how such tools can be leveraged to enhance clinical decision-making.
