Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology) and Genetics, Stanford University
Christina Curtis, PhD, MSc is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Genetics at Stanford University School of Medicine and Co-director of the Stanford Molecular Tumor Board. Dr. Curtis leverages genome-scale data, computational modeling, and iterative experimentation to delineate the mechanisms and dynamics of tumor progression and to develop robust biomarkers. Her research has led to new paradigms in understanding how human tumors evolve and has redefined the molecular taxonomy of breast cancer, yielding new therapeutic targets. Dr. Curtis is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2018 NIH Director’s Pioneer Award and she is National Academy of Sciences Kavli Frontier of Science Fellow. She serves on multiple academic editorial boards and is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for GRAIL and the Cancer Research UK Early Detection Committee.
