Andrew B. Lassman, MD, is the John Harris Associate Professor of Neurology and the Chief of Neuro-oncology at Columbia University. After earning BS and MS degrees in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry as part of a combined 4-year program at Yale University, he received his MD from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Lassman subsequently completed his residency at the Neurological Institute of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, and fellowship in Neuro-Oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where he then joined the faculty and served as fellowship director.

In November 2011, Dr. Lassman became Chief of Neuro-Oncology at Columbia University Medical Center, and also serves as the Medical Director for the Clinical Protocol Data Management Office of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Lassman's research interests focus on translational clinical trials for brain tumors with molecular correlative analyses to understand the reasons for treatment success or failure, and to refine treatment paradigms.
