Biography :

Dr. Ferrarotto received her MD degree and completed her Clinical Residency and Fellowship in São Paulo (Brazil). During her Fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center (2012-2014), Dr. Ferrarotto led a translational research project investigating biomarkers that predict sensitivity to Polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1) inhibitors in non-small cell lung cancers. Her work demonstrated that aggressive mesenchymal cell line and mouse models of non-small cell lung cancers with KRAS mutations were sensitive to PLK1 inhibitors. Currently, Dr. Ferrarotto is an Assistant Professor focused on translational and clinical research in the Department of Thoracic/Head and Neck Medical Oncology, with a particular focus on the rarer tumor subtypes. Dr. Ferrarotto was a recipient of the MD Anderson Jeffrey Lee Cousins Fellowship in Lung Cancer in 2013 and the ASCO Career Development Award in 2016.
