About me

Pronouns: She | Her | Hers

Dr. Claire K. Mulvey is a thoracic medical oncologist who cares for patients with lung cancer. While she treats a wide variety of lung cancers, she specializes in lung neuroendocrine cancers, including typical and atypical carcinoid tumors, large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma and small cell lung cancer. The care she provides to her patients is informed by her past experiences as a caregiver during her husband's cancer treatment.

Mulvey's research centers on developing new treatments for lung neuroendocrine tumors as well as on improving outcomes and quality of life for patients with these cancers.

Mulvey earned her medical degree at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in oncology at UCSF.

Outside of work, Mulvey loves spending time with her husband and two daughters. She also enjoys playing tennis and German-style board games, reading fiction, and singing early music, such as baroque.
