    Cannabinoids as Potential Antitumor Agents

    Presented by:
    Cristina Sanchez, PhD
    Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Complutense University, Madrid, Spain

    Cristina graduated in Biology at Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 1994, and obtained her PhD with Honors in 2000 at the same University. During this period, she studied the effects of cannabinoids on energy metabolism first, and cancer cell proliferation later. After a 3-year postdoctoral stay at University of California Irvine, she returned to Spain and started coordinating a research group focused in understanding and exploiting cannabinoids as potential antitumoral agents in breast cancer. She's the author of more than 50 peer-reviewed research articles, the current Secretary and one of the founding members of the Spanish Observatory on Medicinal Cannabis, a member of the Spanish Cannabinoid Research Society Board of Directors, and Vice-Dean of Research of the School of Biology at Complutense University.
