Christina von Roemeling

Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, University of Florida

Christina von Roemeling, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Florida. Collectively she has nearly 15 years of translational research experience involving the targeted and immunologic treatment of cancer. Her studies focus on delineating mechanisms of tumor-induced innate immune suppression in pediatric and adult brain malignancies, and identifying different strategies to co-opt this cellular cross-talk pharmacologically with small molecule inhibitors and through biomedical engineering tactics using recombinant adeno-associated virus to enhance immune recognition of cancer. She continues to draw from her multidisciplinary training including molecular cancer cell biology, drug development, nanomedicine, and biomedical engineering to identify and develop unique targeted treatment platforms that can be directly translated into clinical therapies for brain tumor patients. Dr. von Roemeling specializes in three dimensional imaging of cleared tissue specimens, providing unique insights into the geo-spatial features of malignancy, such as biophysical barriers that contribute to disease progression, or unique prognostic and therapeutic indicators of tumor response to treatment.
