Research/ Clinical Interests

Dr. Jocelyn Chapman is a surgical and medical cancer expert in gynecologic malignancies and treats patients with cancerous and complex noncancerous diseases of the female reproductive system. In addition to expertise in the aggressive surgical management of advanced ovarian and uterine cancers, she also has special training in minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy and robotic surgery) for appropriately selected patients. Her clinical research focuses on innovating surgical and preoperative processes to ensure that quality surgical care and patient safety are maintained for all gynecologic oncology patients at our institution. Dr. Chapman brings expertise in computational genomics to the division and collaborates with UCSF cancer center researchers to understand the genetic vulnerabilities in gynecologic cancer that can be exploited for therapeutic targeting. Her research has been published in Gynecologic Oncology, Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and Nature Biotechnology. Dr. Chapman speaks English and Spanish.
