Cancer therapy researcher and food aficionado

Dr. Charalambos (Babis) Andreadis specializes in bone marrow transplantation for adults and in treating Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia and multiple myeloma. He cares for patients at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. His research, published widely in scientific journals, examines genetic and other factors that affect how patients respond to therapy, including degrees of drug toxicity. He also studies patient outcomes in these disorders.

Andreadis earned his medical degree at Columbia University's Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society in 1998. He completed a residency at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and a fellowship in hematology and oncology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he joined the faculty in 2004. He also earned a master's degree in clinical epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania, focusing on pharmacogenetics, the study of how genes impact an individual's response to medications.
