About me

Dr. Harish N. Vasudevan is a radiation oncologist who cares for children and adults with nervous system tumors.

With the goal of improving diagnosis and treatment, Vasudevan's research focuses on how certain signals within cells – in particular, those involving a family of proteins called receptor tyrosine kinases and the Ras signaling pathway – lead to cancer. He has a special interest in neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder with numerous effects, including an increased risk of brain and nerve tumors.

Vasudevan completed his undergraduate studies at the California Institute of Technology. He earned his medical degree from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where he also earned a doctorate in neuroscience. He completed a residency in radiation oncology at UCSF and served as chief resident.
