About me

My name is Ashley Ghiaseddin, MD, and I’m a neuro-oncologist and chief of the division of neuro-oncology in UF’s Department of Neurosurgery. I specialize in brain cancer treatment, using targeted methods including chemotherapy, immunotherapy and precision medicine for patients with malignant brain tumors, such as glioblastoma.

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in science and business from the University of Notre Dame and completed my medical degree at the University of Toledo. I went on to complete my residency at Indiana University and a neuro-oncology fellowship at Duke University.

I am a member of the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy, where I collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of experts dedicated to delivering patient-centered care and discovering better treatments for brain tumors.

In addition to taking care of patients, I conduct research into novel immunotherapy approaches to treat brain cancer and improve outcomes for patients. I am also interested in population-based studies involving glioblastoma and identifying ways to improve quality of life for patients and caregivers.

I am a leader in the neuro-oncology section of the American Academy of Neurology, and I am a member of the Society for Neuro-Oncology and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

As a neuro-oncologist, I remain active in clinical trials as well as in authoring manuscripts. I run large investigator-initiated trials, and am currently serving as PI for multiple studies.

Conditions that I focus on treating include glioblastoma, astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, cns lymphoma, ependymoma, neurocytoma and meningioma.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking, traveling and exploring Florida.
