Meet Dr. Vasudevan
I am constantly motivated by our patients, and it is an honor to care for them in the clinic as well as carry out research in the laboratory to develop better cancer tests and treatments.
Dr. Vasudevan is a radiation oncologist specialized in the treatment of nervous system tumors in pediatric and adult patients. As a physician scientist, his research focuses on how oncogenic growth factor signaling leads to cancer, with an emphasis on neurofibromatosis. His laboratory leverages a multidisciplinary approach to understand how such cancers develop with the goal of devising improved diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for patients.
