Jonathan Terdiman, M.D. is co-director of the Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease and the Colorectal Cancer Prevention Program at UCSF Medical Center. His research interests include colorectal cancer prevention, hereditary gastrointestinal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. He frequently lectures in the community, at the university and for various professional organizations on these subjects.

Terdiman earned a medical degree at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons. He went on to complete a residency in internal medicine and fellowships in critical care medicine and gastroenterology at UCSF where he is a professor of clinical medicine and surgery.

Dr. Terdiman's research interests are related to clinical and translational research in the areas of colorectal cancer prevention, especially among individuals at high risk for cancer, such as those with hereditary cancer syndromes or those with longstanding inflammatory bowel disease. Particular areas of interest include the optimal provision of genetic counseling and testing, cancer risk factor
identification and risk mitigation by interventions such as drugs (chemoprevention) and colonoscopy. 

Dr. Terdiman also studies the use of genetic and genomic markers to determine cancer risk and prognosis and prediction of response to therapy among those already diagnosed with cancer. He also is interested in projects related to biomarkers of prognosis and prediction of response to therapies in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
