Matthew Gubens, M.D., M.S. is a thoracic oncologist who treats patients with lung cancer, mesothelioma and other thoracic malignancies, including thymoma and thymic carcinoma, which are rare tumors of the mediastinum. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF.

His research involves designing clinical trials to study new compounds and treatment strategies in lung cancer. He and his colleagues have a special interest in translational medicine, and are actively working to translate laboratory-based findings to the clinic, especially for patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations, who are often young non-smokers.

Dr. Gubens earned his medical degree at Stanford, completed an internal medicine residency at UCSF and then a medical oncology fellowship at Stanford. He also holds an MS degree in Health Policy and Management from Harvard School of Public Health. Gubens is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, the International Thymic Malignancy Interest Group and the American College of Physicians.
