Jennifer Clarke, MD, MPH

Neuro-oncologist

Dr. Jennifer Clarke is a neuro-oncologist, or brain cancer specialist, at UCSF Medical Center. In particular, she is interested in recurring tumors and in tumors being treated with anti-angiogenic agents or substances designed to block the growth of blood vessels and inhibit tumor growth. In her research at the Brain Tumor Research Center at UCSF, she studies new imaging methods to diagnose tumors and to measure their response to treatment. She is also interested in quality of life issues for brain tumor patients and their caregivers.

Clarke earned a medical degree at the UCSF School of Medicine, completed a residency in neurology at UCSF and a fellowship in neuro-oncology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. She is a member of the American Academy of Neurology, American Society of Clinical Oncology and Society for Neuro-Oncology. Clarke is an associate professor of clinical neurology and neurological surgery at UCSF.
