    Dr. Morris Herzstein Professor in Biology, Emeritus
    Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy) at Stanford University Medical Center


    Dr. Steven Hancock is a Professor of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University Medical Center who has practiced at Stanford for over 30 years. He specializes in genitourinary cancers, such as prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, penile and urethral cancers. He also specializes in radiation and radiosurgery treatment of malignant and benign conditions that affect the central nervous system, including glioblastoma, astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, meningioma, acoustic neuroma, arteriovenous malformations, and hemangioblastomas associated wtih Von Hippel Lindau syndrome. Dr. Hancock serves on the National Cancer Center Network (NCCN) guidelines panels for Kidney and Testicular cancers. Research activities have involved initial clinical trials of radiation sensitizer and hypoxic cell cytotoxic agents, initial clinical evaluation of the Cyberknife radiosurgical instrument and longitudinal studies of treatment outcomes and late effects of radiation therapy, such as secondary malignancies and radiation associated cardiovascular disease. Current interests are in the application of new imaging and treatment technologies for improving tumor control and minimizing short and long term side effects of radiation and combined modality therapy.
    Clinical Associate Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy


    Dr. Wendy Hara specializes in the treatment of head and neck and skin cancers. Dr. Hara has a special interest in intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT).

    I am a brain tumor neurosurgeon, treating patients with malignant and benign tumors, including glioma, brain metastases, meningioma, vestibular schwannoma, and pituitary adenomas. Our lab seeks greater understanding of the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms driving tumorigenesis and disease progression in malignant brain tumors. We currently study the capacity of cellular and cell-free DNA to inform treatment choices in patients with brain tumors. We also use single cell and cell subtype-specific transcriptomics to identify and target infiltrating glioblastoma. We hope to identify potentially targetable genes crucial in tumorigenesis. Our laboratory is a unique and collaborative working environment, engaged in a dynamic research environment at Stanford. Our laboratory space lies at the heart of the Stanford campus between the core campus and the medical facilities, emblematic of the translational aspects of our work.
