Dr. Jeremy Rich, MD, MHS, MBA is Professor of Medicine, Director of Neuro-Oncology, and Director of the Brain Tumor Institute of UC San Diego Health. Previously, he served as the inaugural Chair of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Cleveland Clinic and Co-Director of the National Center for Regenerative Medicine. He has received numerous awards, including named as one of the inaugural NCI Outstanding Investigators, as well as induction into the American Society for Clinical Investigation and American Association for Physicians. His work has been published in over 200 original research reports. He serves on several editorial boards and the NCI Board of Scientific Counselors.
The goals of the Rich Lab are to identify novel therapeutic paradigms in the treatment of advanced cancers, primarily malignant brain tumors, through the understanding of a stem cell-like phenotype found in many cancers and core signal transduction pathways amenable to pharmacologic targeting. The aim is to better understand the clinical relevance of cancer stem cells and the interaction with the tumor microenvironment and underlying genetic driver mutations in human cancers.
Dr. Rich also provides clinical care for patients afflicted with primary and metastatic nervous system cancers.
