Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation and Cancer Biology) and of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research is aimed at defining the pathways of p53-mediated apoptosis and tumor suppression, using a combination of biochemical, cell biological, and mouse genetic approaches. Our strategy is to start by generating hypotheses about p53 mechanisms of action using primary mouse embryo fibroblasts (MEFs), and then to test them using gene targeting technology in the mouse.
Professor of Radiation Oncology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We seek to understand the mechanisms responsible for the resistance of cancers to treatment and to develop strategies to overcome these resistances. We are using molecular and cellular techniques and mouse models to potentiate the activity of radiation on tumors by inhibiting the bone marrow rescue of the tumor vasculature following therapy.
Sue and Bob McCollum Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I specialize in the treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies. I am interested in developing stereotactic body radiotherapy for tumors of the liver, both primary and metastatic. I am interested in developing functional imaging as a means of determining treatment response with radiation. I am also interested in developing image-guided radiotherapy to improve radiation delivery for GI cancers to reduce toxicity and improve disease outcome.
Rishabh Chaudhari, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Chaudhari is a radiation oncologist with the Stanford Medicine Cancer Center and a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
He specializes in delivering image-guided interventions for all forms of cancer, including lung, breast, prostate, and head and neck. He treats conditions including mesothelioma, seminoma, renal cell carcinoma, and vulvar cancer.
In every case, he develops a comprehensive, compassionate care plan personalized to the unique needs of each patient. His goal is always to deliver innovative, compassionate care of the highest quality to help each patient achieve the best possible outcome.
Dr. Chaudhari conducts research into leading-edge treatments, allowing him to offer the most advanced care options. He has investigated stereotactic body radiation therapy for non-small cell lung cancer and for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. He has also studied the effects of radiotherapy on breast cancer stem cells and extramedullary plasmacytomas. He also is currently studying the use of proton beam therapy on recurrent head and neck cancers.
Dr. Chaudhari has presented his research findings at meetings of the Radiation Research Society, Society for Thermal Medicine, American Society for Radiation Oncology, and World Congress of Brachytherapy. He has published articles on radiotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer in the journal Lung Cancer: Targets and Therapy. He also co-authored the chapter ?Renal and Adrenal Vasculature: Anatomy and Imaging? in the textbook Image-Guided Interventions. He is a reviewer for Cancer Medicine.
In previous positions, Dr. Chaudhari served on committees dedicated to care quality assurance and to the monitoring of cancer care protocols. Other areas of interest include radiation oncology department operations and advising radiation oncology residents.
Dr. Chaudhari is a member of the American Society for Radiation Oncology.
