The research focus of Jlenia Guarnerio, MS, PhD, is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms of cancer. She is investigating both cell-autonomous mechanisms responsible for cancer progression (e.g., tumor genetics), as well as the non-cell-autonomous ones (e.g., factors derived from the tumor microenvironment). She combines techniques of RNA-sequencing, molecular biology and Crispr/Cas9 technologies, together with the use of mouse models. Her ultimate goal is to identify novel therapeutic interventions for cancer and new strategies of precision medicine.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
