Hani Goodarzi, PhD

Assistant Professor

Dr. Hani Goodarzi is an assistant professor at the University of California, San Francisco. With a dual background in computational and experimental cancer biology, he brings a multidisciplinary approach to studying human disease. His research is focused on developing strategies that enable an unbiased search for previously unknown pathways that drive oncogensis, metastasis, and neurodegenration. As a postdoctoral fellow, at Columbia University and then at Rockefeller University, he developed a number of key technologies that led to the discovery of novel drivers of breast cancer metastasis. In 2016, he started his lab at UCSF where he continues to expand on his multidisciplinary platform in order to find new pathways involved in human disease. He also seeks to translate his findings to the clinic by developing therapeutic regimens that targets these pathways. In 2017, for his contributions to cancer research, he was awarded the Martin and Rose Wachtel Award in Cancer Rseaerch and was recently named a Kimmel scholar. He was previously a recipient of the prestigious Blavatnik award for young scientists as well as the Tri-institutional Breakout prize.
