My Approach

Jasia Mahdi, MD is an Instructor in Neurology at Stanford University. She received her B.S. in biochemistry and B.A. in history from Southern Methodist University, and she then obtained her M.D. from the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. She completed her child neurology residency at St. Louis Children's Hospital at Washington University. While in residency, she developed an interest in the neurological complications that can arise in patients with malignancies, which served as an impetus for her to pursue a pediatric neuro-oncology fellowship. She thus came to Stanford, where she was a Beverly and Bernard Wolfe Fellow in Pediatric Neuro-Oncology. During her fellowship, she became interested in the role of immunotherapy in the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) tumors and the neurological sequelae of CAR-T cell therapy. Her experiences taking care of patients on a clinical trial utilizing CAR-T cell therapy for the treatment of diffuse midline gliomas prompted her to complete a second fellowship at Stanford in pediatric neuro-immuno-oncology to further expand her understanding of immune-based therapies. She now attends on the pediatric and adult neuro-immuno-oncology services, where her primary clinical practice focuses on treating patients with CNS tumors with immune-based therapies, and the child neurology service.

In her spare time, Dr. Mahdi enjoys reading literature, writing narrative non-fiction and short stories, attending concerts, hiking, and yoga.
