Etienne Giroux Leprieur joined the Thoracic Oncology Lab in 2011 as a postoctoral fellow. He is working on the activation of the Sonic Hedgehog pathway in lung cancer, on lung cancer stem cells and their role in chemoresistance.

Prior to UCSF, he began his Ph.D. program in Paris 6 University in the Thoracic Oncology Lab in Tenon Hospital (ER2 GRC04), where he studied the new molecular factors of resistance to cisplatin in non-small cell lung cancer.

He has obtained a M.D. in pulmonology, with a specialization in thoracic oncology in 2009. He worked as a clinical fellow in the Respiratory Diseases and Thoracic Oncology Department in Ambroise Pare Hospital (Versailles-Saint Quentin en Yvelines University) from 2009 to 2011.
