Rageshree Ramachandran, MD, PhD
Research and Clinical Interests
My clinical work is in diagnostic surgical pathology with an emphasis on liver and gastrointestinal disease. My current research focus is on markers expressed by hepatocellular carcinoma versus tumors metastatic to the liver. I also welcome opportunities to provide consultation on animal models of liver injury. In the education realm, I oversee pathology curriculum for first- and second-year UCSF medical students and direct the Path 150.03 senior medical student elective.
