Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, US
Ubaldo Martinez-Outschoorn graduated from medical school at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid. He carried out his postgraduate training in Internal Medicine as well as Hematology-Medical Oncology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Medical Oncology at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles. He is a physician-scientist who cares for patients with cancer and conducts laboratory and clinical research studying cancer metabolism and the tumor microenvironment. His laboratory research focuses on the molecular mechanisms that control interactions between cancer cells and other cells in the microenvironment. He conducts bench to bedside research concentrated in three areas: (1) Understanding metabolic interactions in the tumor microenvironment. (2) Identification of mechanisms through which oxidative stress induces cancer cells to proliferate and resistance to cell death. (3) Elucidating the role of autophagy in cancer cell aggressiveness. He also carries out clinical trials studying metabolic, redox and autophagy modulators in oncology.
