    BioI am a medical oncologist focused on breast cancer and cancer survivorship. My career goal is to improve outcomes and experiences of patients and caregivers living with and beyond cancer, and my research and scholarship have contributed to understanding and meeting the needs of the growing population of cancer survivors. My editorial work for the Journal of Clinical Oncology has given me the opportunity to shape the discourse in oncology and as Editor-in-Chief of Cancer.Net I can bring high quality information about cancer to the lay public.

    Dr. Shah has co-authored articles on treatment for NSCLC and other topics in publications such as Clinical Lung Cancer and Journal of Oncology Practice.

    He has made presentations to his peers at the American Society of Clinical Oncology–Society for the Immunotherapy of Cancer (ASCO-SITC) annual meeting and other conferences. He also has helped develop the curriculum and taught students in hematology, oncology, internal medicine, and neurobiology. In his hematology/oncology fellowship at Stanford, he was a senior teaching fellow.

    Dr. Shah was also a Johnson & Johnson Global Health Scholar, serving for two months as a visiting resident scholar in Kampala, Uganda.

    When not working, he enjoys reading, trying new recipes, and exploring parks with his family.

  • Mohammad Shahrokh Esfahani

    Mohammad Shahrokh Esfahani

    Instructor, Medicine - Oncology

    BioMy expertise is in developing machine learning tools for high dimensional data. In particular, I develop Bayesian models, where 'prior knowledge', from external sources or inherent to the data set in hand, can be converted into mathematical terms (i.e. prior probabilities). I have recently focused on analyzing genetic and epigenetic signals in cell-free DNA assays. Traditional (computational) methods in cancer genomics are limited when signal to noise ratio is ultra-low which is often the case in cfDNA analyses. Therefore, there is a growing need to develop novel and more powerful methods to overcome this limitation.
