Christina Buzzy, PhD

Assistant Director of Research Programs
Case Comprehensive Cancer Center

Christina came to the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center in April 2019 from the University Hospitals Urology Institute where she was Director of Urologic Oncology Research under the advisement of Lee Ponsky, MD. She spent the last three years building a prostate MRI outcomes-focused research group and initiating several urologic clinical trials.

Christina earned her PhD in the department of Pathology (Immunology) at Case Western Reserve University under the mentorship of George Dubyak, PhD in 2014 where she delineated novel inflammasome IL-1b signaling pathways in immune cells triggered by cancer chemotherapeutic drugs.

She understands the processes necessary to perform collaborative clinical translational research and looks forward to facilitating productive interactions among current and future cancer center investigators.
