Munoz-Pinedo lab

This page is maintained by Cristina Muñoz-Pinedo, from the Preclinical and experimental research in thoracic tumors (PrETT) group, part of the Oncobell program at IDIBELL, Barcelona.

For a list of publications please check: ResearcherID or Google scholar.

Research lines:

• Characterisation of immune-tumour-stroma connections in thoracic tumours to improve therapeutic approaches.
• Metabolic vulnerabilities of lung cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma.
• Molecular mechanisms of apoptosis and other forms of cell death induced by metabolic challenges and ischaemia.

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 low nutrients in the microenvironment regulate responses of tumor cells to therapy. We are also studying the role of endoplasmic reticulum stress and the Integrated Stress Response in apoptosis and necrosis induced by glucose deprivation and ischemia, and in interactions of the tumor cells with the microenvironment and the immune system

  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.
