Informations

Dr Sofia Rivera is an MD, MSc, head of a radiation unit at Gustave Roussy, cancer center, currently finishing her PhD in radiobiology. She is a 39 year-old radiation oncologist working at Gustave Roussy Cancer Center since January 2013. She has studied medicine and radiation oncology in Paris, Dijon and Madrid (ERASMUS program), with some time spent in Equatorial Guinea (humanitarian mission). She passed the Radiation Oncology Board Certification Exam in 2008 with her medical thesis on the evaluation of quality assurance procedures by dummy run in a phase III trial. During her training, she was charmed by the multidisciplinary nature of radiation oncology and the enormous potential for innovation within this field. In addition to her clinical work, she undertook a Master’s degree of Science in Radiobiology and is currently finishing her PhD on a translational radiobiology topic evaluating the combination of a Histone Deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor and radiation in preclinical in vitro and in vivo Non Small Cell Lung Cancer models at the Gustave Roussy Radiobiology Laboratory (INSERM1030 Unit), running in parallel a phase I trial combining an HDAC inhibitor with palliative irradiation which has just been completed. Following her studies in the Cancer Center of Dijon (France), she also worked as an assistant professor in Radiation Oncology in the university hospital of Saint Louis in Paris while becoming senior radiation oncologist in the same institution. In 2013, she accepted to head Unit A of the radiation oncology department at Gustave Roussy Cancer Center, Paris Cancer Campus, Villejuif (France) leading the breast cancer radiation unit. With eight linear accelerators, and a ninth being installed currently, about 4000 new radiotherapy treatments per year (among which more than a third given to breast cancer patients), she leads a growing multidisciplinary unit at the cutting edge of research and technology in an expanding department in the stimulating environment of a major cancer center. She promotes clinical radiation oncology unit work in close relationship with the INSERM1030 Unit located in nearby preclinical research building, facilitating translational research programs with the integration of research into daily clinical practice.
