    Dr. Robert Hsu is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Medical Oncology at University of Southern California focusing on thoracic cancers. Dr. Hsu completed his medical school training at Tulane University School of Medicine followed by Internal Medicine residency training at University of Miami/Jackson Memorial and then hematology and oncology training at Los Angeles County+University of Southern California where he served as chief fellow for medical oncology.

    His research interests are focused in lung cancer research along with cancer disparities across multiple solid tumor types. His research includes projects involving comprehensive genomic profiling looking at biomarkers in lung cancer, retrospective database work looking at lung cancer patients treated at USC looking at mutation differences among different ethnicities particularly Hispanics, epidemiological research looking at lung and thyroid cancer incorporating the California Cancer Registry, and translational research looking at tumor microenvironment and ethnicities in lung and breast cancer.
