Paula D. Bos obtained a M.Sc. in Genetics from the National University of Misiones, Argentina, in the field of molecular epidemiology of human papillomavirus cervical infection in Caucasian and guarani populations in the Atlantic Rainforest. She received a M.Sc. and a PhD from the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences in New York working under the supervision of Dr. Joan Massagué. Her graduate studies focused on the development of breast cancer models of brain metastasis and the functional and molecular characterization of metastasis to the lung and brain. Her postdoctoral training was carried out in Dr Sasha Rudensky’s lab in the Sloan-Kettering Institute Immunology Program. Her work started unraveling the role of regulatory T cells in the progression and metastatic dissemination of murine models of breast cancer.

Dr Bos is currently an Assistant professor of Pathology at the Virginia Commonwealth School of Medicine, and Program Co-Leader of the Cancer Biology Program at Massey Cancer Center. Her laboratory utilizes genetic models to characterize tumor microenvironment interactions that foster breast tumor progression and dissemination, with special emphasis in the crosstalk between immune and non-immune cells in brain metastasis.
