Jeremy Rich, M.D., M.H.S., M.B.A. Professor, Department of Medicine, Neuro-Oncology Moore Cancer Center, University of California San Diego 

Dr. Rich is a certified neuro-oncologist and renowned physician-scientist who specializes in diagnosing and treating brain tumors, including gliomas (e.g. glioblastoma, astrocytoma, brainstem glioma, ependymoma, and oligodendroglioma) and brain metastases. As part of a multidisciplinary approach, Dr. Rich works closely with neurosurgeons and medical and radiation oncologists to provide comprehensive treatment plans unique to each patient. 

Dr. Rich has made seminal contributions to the brain tumor field understanding how brain tumors grow and resist current treatments, through the prism of stem cell biology. He is a professor in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Regenerative Medicine, where his research focuses on developing new techniques for treating aggressive brain cancers. Dr. Rich is also active in mentoring medical students, residents and fellows at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

A recognized expert, Dr. Rich is an invited speaker at many national and international conferences and meetings. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and serves on the editorial board for numerous medical journals, including Science Translational Medicine, Clinical Cancer Research, Neuro-Oncology, and PLoS Biology, among others.
