Dr. James Klosky is an Associate Member and Clinical Psychologist at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital where he serves as the Co-Director of the Fertility Preservation Clinic and Director of Psychological Services in Cancer Survivorship. Historically, Dr. Klosky’s professional activities have broadly centered on behavior-based cancer prevention and control among survivors of childhood cancer, but over the last several years, he has primarily been working in the areas of fertility preservation and risky sexual behavior. Since 2010, Dr. Klosky’s work as a Principal Investigator has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health and this research has included large multi-site trials examining the prevalence and predictors of sperm banking among adolescent males newly diagnosed with cancer (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development), and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination initiation among adolescent and young adult survivors of childhood cancer (National Cancer Institute). He has authored over 60 publications in peer-reviewed journals, and serves as a grant reviewer for a number of governmental agencies and private foundations. As the Founder of the Fertility Preservation Clinic at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Dr. Klosky also provides clinical care to pediatric, adolescent, and young adult patients, and actively works on committees to develop national and international guidelines for fertility preservation among at-risk youth.
