Jennie W. Taylor, MD, MPH
Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology, UCSF
I am an academic neuro-oncologist, focused on caring for adult patients with primary brain tumors. In addition to my neurology and neuro-oncology training, I also have a Masters in Public Health (MPH), which I apply to clinical trial development and analysis. I am very active in research areas of novel treatment strategies to improve outcomes for patients with gliomas. I collaborate and serve as the principle investigator on several investigator-initiated, industry-sponsored, and consortia trials. I am involved in the UCSF federal SPORE grant investigating novel ways of investigating the relationship of the immune system with glioma. I also lead our research efforts investigating strategies for improving cognition, quality-of-life, and palliative care for our patients, as well as their caregivers.
