Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology
Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021
Dr. Stoyanova focuses on understanding fundamental molecular mechanisms underlying the development of prostate and other epithelial cancers and their utility as biomarkers and therapeutic targets. Her laboratory aims to improve cancer early detection and aid the development of better therapeutic strategies for metastatic cancer.
Research in Dr. Stoyanova’s laboratory has led to the discovery of new mechanisms underlying the development of aggressive prostate cancer and biomarkers for significant disease as well as new therapies for prostate and other epithelial cancers.
Dr. Stoyanova received her doctorate in biochemistry and molecular genetics at the University of Illinois, Chicago in Dr. Pardip Raychaudhuri’s laboratory in July 2009, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in prostate cancer biology at the University of California, Los Angeles in the laboratory of Dr. Owen Witte. In November 2015, Dr. Stoyanova joined the Department of Radiology and the Canary Center for Cancer Early Detection at Stanford University as an assistant professor.
