Dr. Laura Huppert is an oncologist who cares for patients with all stages of breast cancer.

Huppert's research focuses on designing and conducting clinical trials to evaluate new cancer treatments, including ways to combine therapies so as to improve outcomes. She also studies metastatic breast cancer (that has spread to other body parts), including cancer that has reached the brain and leptomeninges (membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord), and works to translate findings from the lab into care provided to patients.

Huppert earned her medical degree at Harvard Medical School. She completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in hematology and oncology at UCSF. She is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and has received an ASCO Merit Award as well as grants from the California Breast Cancer Research Program.
