Mekhail Anwar, M.D., Ph.D., is a Resident in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco, who has over 10 years of experiences developing microfabricated devices for biomedical applications. Educated at UC Berkeley in Physics, where he was awarded the University Medal as the top graduating senior, he completed his medical degree at UC San Francisco, and went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where his Ph.D. in electrical engineering focused on using microfabricated devices and integrated circuits for biological detection. He has several first author publications spanning integrated circuits, imaging, and protein arrays. His clinical interest in oncology is using new techniques in imaging to guide therapeutic intervention, and he has clinical research efforts in both glioblastoma and prostate cancer. His research focus is fundamentally guided by where innovations in diagnostic and treatment technologies can most benefit patient care. Currently, his primary interest is in developing micro-devices to interact with and image the tumor microenvironment, and he is developing an imager for microscopic disease in breast cancer, currently funded by UCSF's Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
