Ash A. Alizadeh, MD/PhD
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on attaining a better understanding of the initiation, maintenance, and progression of tumors, and their response to current therapies toward improving future treatment strategies. In this effort, I employ tools from functional genomics, computational biology, molecular genetics, and mouse models.
Clinically, I specialize in the care of patients with lymphomas, working on translating our findings in prospective cancer clinical trials.

Bio I have a background in the execution of molecular biology research as a former laboratory technician for 5 years during and following my undergraduate degree in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology. I also have a background in epidemiology and statistics through my MPH at UC Berkeley during which time I mastered the application of meta-analysis and systematic review techniques to infectious diseases topics, in particular in my masters thesis on HIV directly observed therapy. In addition, my years at Stanford as an internal medicine resident, infectious diseases fellow, and immunocompromised infectious diseases fellow have further developed my desire to address important translational questions that will improve the clinical outcomes of the patients that I care for on the stem cell transplant service. I hope to find therapies that might safely and effectively supplement and even take the place of antibiotics for prophylaxis and treatment of GVHD and infectious complications.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Oncology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on understanding the evolution of tumor cell populations, on how selective pressures, such as those imposed by chemo- and radiotherapies, favor the survival of one tumor cell population over another. Towards this goal I develop algorithms that measure intra-tumor heterogeneity from next-generation sequencing data or from more traditional diagnostic procedures, such as H&E stainings.
My long-term goal is to develop an adaptable therapeutic strategy that vastly increases the number of alternative therapy options and that rationalizes therapy choice.
