Biography

Dr. Tseng is a highly regarded surgical oncologist and gastrointestinal surgeon, whose practice encompasses the upper gastrointestinal tract. She has led a group of diverse BIDMC faculty in oncology research, education and care for GI, endocrine, breast, as well as melanomas and sarcomas, and other malignancies.

Dr. Tseng has published more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles on reducing surgical risk, cancer biomarkers and on developing models for cancer treatment sequencing strategies, with a strong focus on racial and socioeconomic disparities in care, an important BMC and BUSM mission. She has collaborated with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to assess the impact of factors including insurance, disparities and health care reform on cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention. She was the Founding Director of SOAR (Surgical Outcomes Analysis & Research) at UMass in 2007, a research initiative to improve treatment strategies for a broad range of surgical conditions and to develop tools to assess and reduce risk. At BIDMC, she and her co-leaders have led the continued development of SOAR as a health services and outcomes research group.

Dr. Tseng is also a dedicated educator of medical students and residents who has mentored numerous trainees throughout her research career.
