Dr. Guerriero received her Bachelor’s degree in BioChemistry from Northeastern University and has a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Immunology and Pathology from Stony Brook University where she trained under Dr. Wei-Xing Zong and completed her thesis entitled, “A study of cell death pathways and innate immunity in cancer chemotherapy”.
Dr. Guerriero completed her postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Anthony Letai at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute where she investigated the role of tumor macrophages in breast cancer and identified novel mechanisms to target pro-tumor macrophages to an anti-tumor phenotype to induce tumor regression. She built “Team Macrophage” during her postdoctoral fellowship, including Dr. Anita Mehta and Emily Cheney, who are now part of the Breast Tumor Immunology Laboratory.
Dr. Guerriero is now an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and is the Director of the Breast Tumor Immunology Laboratory in the Susan F. Smith Women’s Cancer Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
