About me

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 treating tumors with anti-angiogenic agents, which are substances designed to inhibit tumor growth by blocking development of new blood vessels. In her studies at the UCSF Brain Tumor Research Center, she investigates new imaging methods for diagnosing tumors and measuring 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, then completed a residency in neurology at UCSF and a fellowship in neuro-oncology at 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.
