Osama Mohamad, M.D. Ph.D.
Dr. Osama Mohamad is a radiation oncologist treating genitourinary cancers with a special focus on prostate and kidney using intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT), and HDR brachytherapy. He will build on the strong interdisciplinary cancer clinical programs in the departments of urology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology at UCSF to develop clinical research, clinical trials, and translational research. His research focuses on using ablative radiation techniques for treating localized and metastatic prostate and kidney cancers and studying clinical determinants of outcomes and responses to treatments..
