Anusha Kalbasi, M.D.
Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy)
BioDr. Kalbasi is a board-certified radiation oncologist and physician-scientist at the Stanford Cancer Institute. He is also an associate professor of radiation oncology at Stanford Medicine and a project member of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy.
Dr. Kalbasi specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of solid tumors, especially sarcoma and melanoma, with a focus on bringing new treatments to patients. This focus includes using advanced techniques in cancer immunotherapy, including CAR T-cell therapy and innate immune agonists.
Dr. Kalbasi's NIH-funded laboratory is actively engaged in translational research with a special focus on developing new immunotherapy treatments for patients with solid tumors, especially sarcoma. A primary focus of his ongoing research involves identifying why some patients do not benefit from treatments like immunotherapy or radiation, then designing and testing strategies to overcome treatment resistance. Dr. Kalbasi is also an experienced leader of clinical trials related to immunotherapy, T cell therapy and radiation therapy, and is a recipient of the Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award.
Prior to his arrival at Stanford Health Care, Dr. Kalbasi was assistant professor of radiation oncology in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and chief of sarcoma radiotherapy at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. During his tenure, he was named a NextGen Star by the American Association of Cancer Research in recognition for excellence in cancer research.
Dr. Kalbasi’s work has been published in leading journals including Nature, Science Translational Medicine, JAMA Oncology, Lancet Oncology, Nature Cancer and Cancer Discovery. He has served as a peer reviewer for multiple prestigious journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Cell and the Journal of Clinical Investigation. He has also presented research to his peers at the American Association for Cancer Research and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
