Eric Zhao, MD, PhD
Cancer Doctor / Data Scientist


Enabling personalized cancer therapy.

I grew up in a few different cities, but mostly in Vancouver, BC. When I’m not seeing patients or keeping up with the scientific literature, you’ll find me tinkering with graphic design, playing music, biking around the city, listening to podcasts, shooting photos, and many more things I feel obligated to do as a west coast millenial.

Radiation Oncologist

Resident doctor at the University of Toronto, specializing in Radiation Oncology.

Data Scientist

I love health, and I love data. So I especially love studying how we can use data to improve health. I’m basically a gene hacker - I use data science to uncover new knowledge about the human cancer genome.

Cancer Researcher

My PhD research happened at the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre. I investigated how cancers (fail to) repair their DNA, and how that could improve cancer treatment.
