Charles Kaufman, MD, PhD

Medical Oncologist

Primary Academic Title

Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Medical Oncology, Washington University School of Medicine

Clinical Expertise

Melanoma, skin cancers

Research Interest

My goal as a physician-scientist is to interface between medicine and basic science to confront challenging fundamental questions in cancer biology. In particular, I study the molecular regulation of cancer initiation - the events that occur at the very start of tumor formation - during which cells readopt stem cell-like characteristics.
