About me

Dr. Rahul Aggarwal is a specialist in cancers of the genital and urinary organs. He cares for patients at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. He also serves as director of the UCSF STAND (Supportive Therapy in Androgen Deprivation) Clinic, which provides comprehensive care to men who are receiving androgen deprivation therapy, hormone therapy for prostate cancer.

As a member of the Developmental Therapeutics Genitourinary Cancer Program, Aggarwal enrolls patients with advanced solid tumor malignancies into early-phase clinical trials of novel targeted treatments. His research focuses on developing hormonal treatment strategies that reduce the toxicity of androgen deprivation therapy for men with advanced prostate cancer. He is also interested in developing new molecular imaging techniques that will help predict how advanced solid tumors will respond to treatment.

Aggarwal earned his medical degree from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. At UCSF, he completed an internship and residency in internal medicine, followed by a clinical fellowship in hematology and oncology.

Aggarwal has also been a research fellow in developmental therapeutics at Genentech. He is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and recipient of the ASCO/Conquer Cancer Foundation Young Investigator Award.
