Christina Curtis, PhD, MSc, is an Associate Professor and Endowed Scholar in the Departments of Medicine and Genetics at Stanford University, where she leads the Cancer Computational and Systems Biology group. She is also the Director of Breast Cancer Translational Research and Co-Director of the Molecular Tumor Board at the Stanford Cancer Institute. Dr. Curtis’ laboratory leverages computational modeling and iterative experimentation to define the molecular determinants and dynamics of tumor progression, and to define robust biomarkers. Her research has helped to redefine the molecular map of breast cancer and led to new paradigms in understanding how human tumors evolve. Dr. Curtis is the recipient of awards from the V Foundation for Cancer Research, STOP Cancer, AACR, and is a Kavli Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences. She received the National Institutes of Health Director's Pioneer Award in 2018 and was named a Komen Scholar in 2020.
