Biography
Dr. Curtis’ laboratory leverages data analytics, high-throughput molecular profiling and experimentation to develop new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Her research has led to new paradigms in understanding how human tumors evolve and metastasize and has redefined the molecular map of breast cancer. She has been the recipient of numerous awards, including those from the V Foundation for Cancer Research, STOP Cancer, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). She received the National Institutes of Health Directors Pioneer Award in 2018 and was named an In Vivo Rising Star in 2021. She is a Kavli Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, a Susan G. Komen Scholar, and a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator. In 2022, she received the AACR Award for Outstanding Achievement in Basic Science.
