Dr. W. Clay Gustafson is a specialist in pediatric cancer. He is a physician-scientist with a research interest in developing novel treatments for pediatric solid tumors, particularly neuroblastoma (a cancer that starts in immature nerve cells and affects mostly infants and young children). In the clinic setting, he focuses largely on phase I and II clinical trials (studies using patients to evaluate promising therapies) for neuroblastoma. He has received several grants focused on investigating unique treatment approaches to cancer.
Gustafson earned an undergraduate degree in biochemistry and English literature at Rice University. He earned his medical degree and a doctorate in biochemistry and genetics from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. He completed a residency in pediatrics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and a fellowship in pediatric hematology and oncology at UCSF.
