Schadler is originally from Austin, Texas. She completed her B.S. in Molecular & Cell Biology at Texas A&M University, where she had her first job in a scientific setting making fly food for a drosophila genetics lab. Schadler then completed her Ph.D. in Cancer Biology at The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and MD Anderson Cancer Center. Her thesis work demonstrated the critical role of DLL4-Notch signaling for bone marrow-derived cell participation in vasculogenesis in Ewing’s sarcoma. For this work, Schadler was awarded the Alfred Knudson Award for Excellence in Graduate Research by MD Anderson Cancer Center. During graduate school, Schadler completed over 100 hours of observation in the pediatric non-neural solid tumors clinic in the Children’s Cancer Hospital at MD Anderson, and earned a certification in Clinical and Translational Research. After graduate school, Schadler completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute. During this fellowship, Schadler’s love for tumor vascular development was combined with a scientific interest in the role of exercise in cancer treatment, and she launched the basis of her current focus on the effects of exercise on tumor response to therapy. Schadler returned to MD Anderson Cancer Center as faculty in 2015. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling and running or cycling the bayou trails of Houston.
