I grew up in Cleveland and completed my undergraduate degree in Chemistry at Case Western Reserve University, followed by medical school at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. While in medical school, I completed a year of research studying the association between molecular subtypes of brain metastases and their response to stereotactic radiosurgery. I subsequently completed a preliminary medicine internship at Kaiser Permanente San Francisco before joining the Stanford Radiation Oncology Residency Program. I am currently interested in virally-associated neoplasms and the use of blood-based assays for cancer screening and surveillance. Outside of medicine, I enjoy cycling, surfing, and pottery.

Hi I'm JP! I was originally born in Lebanon, and grew up in Miami, FL. I attended the University of Miami for both undergrad, where I majored in physics and biochemistry, as well as medical school. I completed my internship year in Internal Medicine at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. My academic interests include radiomic image analyses and formulating mathematical models of diseases. Outside of work you might catch me working out at the park, going out with friends or playing basketball.
I have a BS in biomedical engineering from Duke University, MD degree from UCSD, and have expertise in computer science, medical imaging, and machine learning. I enjoy tennis and hiking.
My name is Elham, but I go by El. I went to UCSD for undergrad, and Yale for medical school. I’ve lived in 7 states, I have a twin brother and a deaf black cat, I’m selectively ambidextrous, my favorite book is Pet Semetery, and I do not like the word alpaca. I love spending time with my family, weight lifting, talking about movies, petting animals, exploring new cereals, and napping.
I went to medical school at Yale. During my spare time, I like to spend time with my family, do yoga, go walking outside, look at online recipes and Instagram photos of my nephew and niece.
I am originally from Scranton Pennsylvania and did my undergraduate work at Cornell University majoring in both Biology and Classic Civilizations. I completed the MD/PhD Program and did my medical internship at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia then relocated to the Bay Area to train here at Stanford. I’m passionate about translational cancer research as well as patient-centered care, advocacy and survivorship for cancer patients. Outside of work, my hobbies include reading and writing science fiction, experimenting with cooking vegan recipes, spending time with my family (including my 2 dogs, both Belgian Malinois), jogging and enjoying what the Bay Area has to offer (hiking, beaches, culinary scene and wine-tasting to name a few).
I’m originally from Cleveland, I graduated from Ohio State University, where I studied mathematics and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. I graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 2018, and completed a medicine internship at University of Kentucky in 2019. I’m passionate about patient-centered clinical oncology, research, evidence based medical education, and mentoring medical students. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing fetch with my puppy Charlie, and spending time with friends and family.
I attended Swarthmore College for my undergraduate studies, majoring both in Biology and Economics. Following college, I received a Fulbright Scholarship to support my research in tumor immunology in Marseille, France. I completed my medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania at which time I spent an extra year serving as a clinical research coordinator within the Department of Radiation Oncology. I thoroughly enjoy making the most of what the Bay has to offer, spending my weekends running, cycling, and/or hiking. Other interests include obtaining/refining my wine palate, learning how to do a headstand, and grasping the elements of cooking.
I grew up in Missoula, MT and received my undergraduate degree at the University of Utah. I completed my MD/PhD through the University of Colorado Medical Scientist Training Program. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my family, mountain biking, disc golf, and basketball.
I love eating and trying new foods! One of my hobbies is traveling to different cities, then going on Yelp and eating at the top 3 places. One of my newer hobbies is working out--so that I can eat more. I can spend an infinite amount of time with my dog, and I also enjoy hiking and painting!
After growing up in the quintessential Midwestern suburbs of Columbus, Ohio, I moved to the East Coast to attend the University of Pennsylvania where I studied Economics as an undergraduate student. I then joined Penn's Perelman School of Medicine as a 21st Century Gamble Scholar, and while in medical school, I collaborated on research projects with the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics as well as the Department of Radiation Oncology at Penn. I concurrently pursued my MBA at The Wharton School, and throughout my education, I've sought out work experiences in hospital operations, health insurance, biopharma business development, and biotechnology investing. Prior to starting Radiation Oncology residency, I completed a Transitional Year internship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. In my free time, I enjoy spinning, playing tennis, wine tasting, and finding ways to be more outdoorsy now that I live in the Bay Area.

I attended medical school at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine in Burlington, VT. Prior to medical school, I was a medical dosimetrist in radiation oncology for many years, working most recently at NYU Langone in New York City, and just prior, at Brigham and Women's Hospital/Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, living most recently in Queens, NY, prior to arriving at Stanford. In my spare time, I enjoy basketball, exploring our new hometown, and playing with my kids.
Yufan Fred Wu
I grew up in the frigid north of Toronto, Canada and earned a Bachelor of Health Sciences from McMaster University before attending medical school in sunny Palo Alto at Stanford School of Medicine. Here, I conducted research on gastrointestinal malignancies, cardiac sarcoma, and medical education, while completing concentrations in Clinical Research and Cancer Biology. My intern year was spent in Houston at Baylor College of Medicine/MD Anderson Cancer Center before returning to Stanford. During my spare time, I love to play basketball, hike, eat sushi/noodles, swim, and dog-sit for my friends.
I am originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!). I completed my undergraduate education at Michigan State University and majored in Chemistry and Human Biology with a focus on Health Promotion, followed by medical school at the University of Wisconsin Madison. I was a 2018-2019 Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Fellow, where I studied endogenous antibody generation in response to combination radiation immunotherapy treatments. I completed a preliminary medicine internship at St Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco, prior to joining the Stanford Radiation Oncology Department. I have an interest in the ways by which the immune system responds to radiotherapy, multimodality treatments, as well as improving patient quality of life. In my free time I love running, biking, knitting, sewing, reading, football, and of course exploring the beautiful Bay area with my husband and dog, by means of hiking and eating delicious food.
I grew up in the great Garden State of New Jersey and completed my undergrad degree in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University. I then finished my medical degree at Harvard Medical School, where I also did an additional year of research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham and Women’s Hospital. I came out to the Bay Area to do my medicine internship at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center, before finally moving here to join the Stanford Radiation Oncology Program. Outside of medicine, I enjoy weight-lifting, hiking, cornhole, Bruce Springsteen, and attempting to homebrew in my spare time.
Aloha, my name is Kekoa. I was born and raised in Mililani, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi. My life’s mission has been to return home to the islands to provide high quality cancer care to the communities that raised me. I completed my PhD at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and MD at Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine. I am very happy to finally make it out to the West Coast, closer to home. My research interests include Pacific Islander health disparities, access to cancer care disparities, oligometastatic prostate cancer, and the impact of cancer healthcare costs have on survival outcomes. I absolutely love Stanford and California and feel the area promotes excellent quality of life as a resident. I love to hike, run, swim, and explore California with my wife and friends.
