Yolanda Tseng, MD, MPhil currently serves as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Washington and an affiliate investigator at the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center (Seattle, Washington).

Her clinical interests are in hematological malignancies, primary CNS tumors, and palliative radiotherapy. Her primary academic focus is on questions that inform therapeutic decisions in daily clinical practice. These include: 1) using advanced treatment techniques and treatment algorithms to widen the therapeutic ratio for late effects in lymphoma patients, 2) evaluating how patient characteristics and tumor subtypes affect responses to radiotherapy, and 3) understanding clinical decision-making and workflows in palliative radiotherapy and use of radiation at the end of life.
