Eric Collisson

Associate Professor, UCSF School of Medicine

Eric Collisson is a medical oncologist with a specific interest in the genomics of cancer. He received his B.A. from UC Berkeley in 1996, and his M.D. from UC Los Angeles in 2002.

His laboratory uses a variety of techniques to interrogate three basic themes in the biology and clinical behavior of these deadly cancers: (1) inter-patient tumor heterogeneity at the temporal and anatomic levels, (2) inter-patient heterogeneity between different patients, and (3) tumor-microenvironmental interactions. He uses a combination of genetically engineered mouse models, cell lines, and clinically derived samples to interrogate multiple genomic outputs with a focus on genomic DNA and mRNA.
