Bio Statement

Dr. Vassiliki Papadimitrakopoulou is a Professor of Medicine in the Department of Thoracic/Head and Neck Medical Oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Her areas of expertise include design and development of novel therapeutic clinical trials for lung and head and neck neoplasms, personalized-genomics-driven lung cancer therapy and translational research and cancer chemoprevention. Her extensive experience in design, development and implementation of translational research in the context of multidisciplinary research teams has led to research funding from NCI, ASCO, and DOD both independently and as a member of a research team. She has prevention studies that have resulted in a series of innovative findings regarding the role of cyclin D1 overexpression and gene polymorphisms and the significance of aneuploidy as predictor and a tool for selecting high-risk cohorts for intervention and personalized targeted therapy approaches (EPOC trial). Her sustained contributions to the Head and Neck SPORE program with a series of innovative approaches have resulted in better understanding of the field and complemented a very well established research program at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Currently, she serves as the principal investigator and leads numerous clinical and translational research projects with a focus on the development of biomarker-based targeted therapy to overcome therapeutic resistance in advanced disease.  Most notably she created and led the multidisciplinary clinical and translational research infrastructure dedicated to the treatment of metastatic refractory NSCLC as part of  the BATTLE-2 program,  designed and developed the first-in-the-world comprehensive genomics-driven umbrella approach in Squamous Lung Cancer, the Lung Master protocol, jointly sponsored by NCI-CTEP and FNIH/industry.  This work will change how we treat squamous lung cancer and has the greatest potential for bringing personalizing medicine to patients with this disease.  She is the Co-PI of an R01 Grant focusing on the role of KRAS mutations and targeting in lung cancer and leading numerous immunotherapy clinical trials. Dr. Papadimitrakopoulou is the lead author or co-author of over 175 published articles, book chapters, reviews and abstracts involving cancer therapeutics, prevention, and translational research and she has received several awards including the ASCO Young Investigator and Career Development Award.
