Jennifer Stanley, M.D.
Jennifer Stanley was born and raised throughout the Midwest, but fell in love with Wisconsin and decided to move her family to Milwaukee. She attended Purdue University earning her Bachelors in Science with Honors in Research. From there she was accepted into a NIH-funded Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the University of Alabama in Birmingham where she earned her PhD in Cancer Biology in 2015, then her MD in 2017. She was selected as a senior member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honors Society. During her training she focused on translating novel breast cancer therapeutics from the bench to the clinic.
After graduating, she stayed in Birmingham, AL for a 1-year internship with the Brookwood-Baptist Health System. She then returned to the Midwest for radiation oncology residency at Washington University in St Louis, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, and the Siteman Cancer Center. As a resident, she completed the Holman Research Pathway where she received funding to investigate the role of immunotherapy in potentiating radiation’s effects in gynecological malignancies. She has an interest in women’s health, focusing on breast and gynecological cancers, with numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at national conferences.
She joined Radiation Oncology Associates upon graduation from residency and is based mainly at Aurora St Luke’s. Her practice is open to all adult patients and is committed to providing evidence-based, patient-focused care utilizing the latest technological advances. Outside of the clinic, she focuses on spending time with her four children and husband, and exploring Wisconsin.
