Dr. Ross Okimoto is a medical oncologist who specializes in caring for adult patients with soft tissue and bone sarcomas (a type of malignant tumor). He works with a team of surgeons, radiation oncologists and pathologists to provide the best possible outcomes for his patients.

A physician-scientist, Okimoto conducts research in addition to providing care. The overarching goal of his laboratory-based investigations is to improve outcomes for cancer patients. His current research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that promote tumor cell metastasis (the spread of cancer to other parts of the body).

Okimoto attended Creighton University School of Medicine. He completed a residency in internal medicine at Tufts Medical Center and a fellowship in medical oncology at UCSF.
