C. Munoz-Pinedo’s lab

This page is maintained by Cristina Muñoz-Pinedo, from the Cell Death Regulation group, part of the Oncobell program at IDIBELL, Barcelona.

For a list of publications please check: ResearcherID or search Pubmed (Munoz-Pinedo) for the most recent ones.

Strategic lines:

• Molecular mechanisms of apoptosis and other forms of cell death induced by glucose deprivation and ischaemia

• Metabolic vulnerabilities in sarcoma

• Tumour microenvironment in sarcoma and lung cancer

Current research topics:

Our lab is interested in the regulation of apoptosis by the glycolytic metabolism, and its aplication to cancer therapy. In particular, we are studying how inhibition of glycolysis triggers apoptosis and autophagy in tumors, and how inhibitors of glucose uptake sensitize tumor cells to chemotherapy. Moreover, we are studying the role of autophagy and endoplasmic reticulum stress in apoptosis and necrosis induced by glucose deprivation and ischemia.

  1. Hello Cristina,
    Could you please share our most recent publication that details the outcome of our pre-clinical trial that tests mono-therapies and combinations therapies for ability to inhibit development of spontaneous breast cancer in a GEM model that is hyperactive for mTOR and cancer cell metabolism.
    Thank you.

  2. Muchas gracias, por añadirme al grupo, y por no poner mi nombre al revés.
    Para mi fue un placer conoceros. Lo pase muy bien.
