Ji, Hanlee, MD

Medical Oncologist, Hematologist / Oncologist in Stanford


Dr. Hanlee Ji graduated in 1994 from John Hopkins School of Medicine in Internal Medicine and went on to specialize in Oncology. He is currently the Assistant Professor, Medicine - Oncology at Stanford University CA.His research group is pursuing projects focused on personalized medicine. Specifically, he is interested in using genetic and genomic approaches in oncology to improve targeted cancer therapy, make accurate prognosis, predict cancer therapy efficacy and identify clinically relevant cancer mutations. These projects are aimed towards establishing the paradigm for individualized medicine, facilitating the introduction of these approaches into clinical studies and thus developing the next generation of cancer diagnostics and treatment.His research program is specifically focused on: 1. Discovery and validation of genetic signatures portending prognosis and therapeutic drug targets for individuals with cancer. 2. Development of novel approaches for analyzing cancer genomes and identifying personalized therapeutic targets 3. Determining inherited pathogenic mutations that increase the risk of developing gastrointestinal malignancies 4. The genetic analysis of complete cancer genome sequences derived from inherited cancer 5. Technology development on novel genetic diagnostic methods to help individuals with cancer
