Biography

Dr. Steve Yoon-Ho Cho is an Assistant Professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Division of Nuclear Medicine within the Department of Radiology and Radiological Science. His areas of clinical expertise include nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging, with a special interest in prostate cancer and lymphoma.

Dr. Cho received his medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine. He completed residencies in nuclear medicine and pediatrics at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Cho went on to complete fellowships in PET and computed tomography (CT) imaging, nuclear medicine, and pediatric oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He also completed a fellowship in clinical pharmacology at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Cho joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2007.

Dr. Cho''s research interests include translational molecular imaging, nuclear oncology, and radiotherapy. Current studies examine PET imaging as it relates to prostate cancer and lymphoma.

Dr. Cho serves as a review editor for Frontiers in Cancer Imaging and Diagnosis and is on the associate editorial board of the American Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. He is the recipient of a Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) Research Scholar Award, Prostate Cancer Foundation Young Investigator Award and a Prostate Cancer Foundation Creativity Award. Dr. Cho is actively involved with the Children''s Oncology Group (COG) for application of FDG PET/CT in pediatric Hodgkin''s Lymphoma treatment response and phase I therapeutic development.

    Research Summary

    Dr. Cho’s research focuses on molecular imaging, particularly positron emission tomography (PET) imaging, of prostate cancer and lymphoma.

    He recently received a research grant from the Prostate Cancer Foundation to develop a new prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) test that uses PET scans to detect changes in prostate tumor size during experimental treatment. This imaging system has the potential to more specifically stage prostate cancer patients prior to initial therapy and determine those who might benefit from early aggressive therapy.

    Other open studies use tumor imaging and dosimetry to study the effectiveness of I-124 PGN650 for treating advanced solid tumors, examine the effectiveness of stereotactic radiation therapy for pediatric sarcomas, and use PET quantitative assessments to examine how solid tumors respond to immune checkpoint blockade therapy.

    Dr. Cho’s research endeavors have earned him awards and recognition, including a Young Investigator Award and a Creativity Award from the Prostate Cancer Foundation and a Research Scholar Award from the Radiology Society of North America.
