Dolores Di Vizio's Biography

Dolores Di Vizio, Professor, Cedars Sinai Medical Center

Dr. Dolores Di Vizio is a pathologist and a molecular and cell biologist trained at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Di Vizio holds an academic appointment as associate professor at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and at the University of California, Los Angeles. She is an Executive Chair of the International Society of Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV). Her group studies the molecular mechanisms of progression to advanced disease in human tumors, with a particular emphasis on large oncosomes, extracellular vesicles (EVs) shed into the extracellular space from fast migrating and metastatic amoeboid cancer cells. Her lab is currently profiling the large oncosomes and other EV populations by NGS and proteomics for functional and molecular characterization.

Large oncosomes are a distinct type of extracellular vesicles that originate from the shedding of bulky membrane blebs. The abundance of large oncosomes in the circulation and in tissues correlates with advanced disease in mouse models and patients with cancer. Large oncosomes represent a novel population of EVs and valuable candidates for identification of new cancer-specific biomarkers.
