Ana P. Gomes, PhD

Assistant Member
Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute

Tampa, Florida, USA

Ana P. Gomes is an Assistant Member of the Department of Molecular Oncology at the Moffitt Cancer Center. She received a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Coimbra (Portugal) and did her PhD work under the supervision of Dr. David Sinclair at Harvard Medical School studying the role of NAD+ in skeletal muscle aging. Ana subsequently completed her postdoctoral training with Dr. John Blenis at Weill Cornell Medicine, studying the influence of age-driven metabolic and epigenetic reprogramming in tumor progression. Her laboratory aims to define how the physiology of the host (e.g. aging, obesity, stress) shapes the tumorigenic process spanning from initiation to progression into metastatic disease as well as sensitivity to treatments. Ana has previously received a Susan G. Komen fellowship, a K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award and a New Innovator Award from the National Institutes of Health, and was selected as an American Cancer Society Scholar, Forbeck Scholar, a STAT Wunderkind and a Rising Star in Cancer Metabolism and Signaling by the New York Academy of Sciences.
