Dr. Gutierrez received an MD degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and completed a pediatrics residency at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, followed by a fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology at Boston Children's Hospital/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. His postdoctoral research training was with Dr. A. Thomas Look at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Dr. Gutierrez is a Scholar of the American Society of Hematology-Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program and recipient of the 2010 Young Investigators Award from the American Society of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology.
The Gutierrez laboratory is focused on discovery of molecular oncogenesis and novel therapeutic targets for chemoresistant human cancers, including high-risk T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and treatment-resistant sarcomas. Our approach combines functional genetics, biochemistry, and small molecule screens, leveraging the zebrafish models of these high-risk human cancers we have recently developed.
