Sarah Stuckelberger, MD

Dr. Sarah Stuckelberger is a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Ronny Drapkin at Ovarian Cancer Research Center at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Dr. Stuckelberger earned her MD from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 2012, and is currently a resident in Gynecology and Obstetrics at the Lausanne University Hospital. She joined Dr. Drapkin’s laboratory a year ago, after receiving awards from two Swiss Foundations (The Stanley Park Foundation and the Fondation pour le perfectionnement et la recherche en gynécologie et obstétrique du Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois). Her studies focus on developing a new mouse model to study the susceptibility of the fallopian tube epithelium to neoplastic transformation. Although a number of human cell line models have been developed, there are currently no murine fallopian tube-derived cell lines are available for cancer research. This new syngeneic model will allow the implantation of transformed mouse fallopian tube cells into immunocompetent mice to study how the host microenvironment interacts with the tumor, and to test new emerging immunotherapies. Such a model would represent a renewable resource for the ovarian cancer research community.
