Guarnerio Lab

I am a molecular and cellular biologist trained at Harvard Medical School, currently holding an academic appointment as assistant professor at Cedars-Sinai. In my scientific career, I have been researching the cell-autonomous and non-cell-autonomous contributions to cancer and have focused my investigations specifically on leukemia and sarcoma.

Sarcomas are heterogeneous tumors that originate from cells belonging to the mesenchymal lineages. With the aim of identifying new and more effective therapies for these tumors, the Guarnerio Laboratory has developed a sarcoma genetic platform that offers multiple advantages when compared with other protocols.
