Jeremy P. Harris, MDAssistant Professor

Dr. Jeremy Harris is an Assistant Professor and Chief of the Thoracic Radiation Oncology service at UCI. After graduating from Johns Hopkins University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Dr. Harris earned a Master’s degree in Chemistry at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom with funding through the Churchill Scholarship Foundation. Thereafter, Dr. Harris earned his Medical Degree at Stanford University. His residency training was also completed at Stanford University, where he conducted clinical research and developed expertise in health services and cost-effectiveness methodologies.

Dr. Harris specializes in the treatment of lung cancer, soft tissue sarcomas, skin cancers, and spine tumors. As an expert in the use of stereotactic body radiotherapy, Dr. Harris research focuses on the applications of advanced radiation technologies with systemic therapies to improve cancer care. He has received funding for investigator-initiated clinical trials on lung cancers as well as soft-tissue sarcomas. Dr. Harris serves on the steering committee of the University of California Lung Cancer Consortium, the SWOG sarcoma working group, and the UCI Data Safety Monitoring Board. A past winner of the Association of Residents in Radiation Oncology Educator of the Year award, Dr. Harris also serves as Associate Program Director for the radiation oncology residency.
