Born and raised in Kamloops, BC, Dr. Lockwood obtained his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia and trained with the lung cancer research group at BC Cancer Research Centre where he worked on characterizing the genetic mechanisms underlying the development of different lung cancer subtypes. He pursued postdoctoral studies as a CIHR Jean-Francois St. Dennis Fellow in Cancer Research in the laboratory of Nobel laureate Dr. Harold Varmus, first at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, and later at the National Human Genome Research Institute in Bethesda. There, he focused on utilizing mouse models of lung cancer to study mechanism of lung cancer initiation, progression and response to therapy and identifying novel therapeutics for lung cancer treatment. Dr. Lockwood returned to the BC Cancer to begin his own research group in 2014 with a focus on understanding lung cancer biology using integrative genomics approaches and is currently a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar and Scientist in the Integrative Oncology Department.
