Alexa Glencer, M.D. is a General Surgery Resident in the UCSF Department of Surgery. Dr. Glencer attended Princeton University as an undergraduate, where she graduated magna cum laude with a major in biology and minors in global health & health policy and environmental science. She then moved to San Francisco, where she worked as a clinical trial coordinator in breast oncology at UCSF before attending medical school. She completed medical school at UCSF, during which time she continued to contribute to breast oncology clinical trial research. During her research years, Dr. Glencer conducted research with Dr. Laura Esserman and Dr. Kim Kirkwood focused on characterizing the tumor immune microenvironment of breast ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN). She also worked to develop a novel pancreatic cancer organoid model that she hopes will provide a strong physiologic correlate to the human tumor immune microenvironment.
