Claire Vanpouille-Box received her Ph.D. in Experimental Pharmacology in 2011 from the University of Angers, France. Determined
to pursue an academic career and intrigued by the emerging role of radiation in cancer immunotherapy, she decided to join
the lab of Dr. Demaria in 2011 to conduct her postdoctoral training. Claire is currently holding a junior faculty position
as an instructor in radiation oncology at Weill Cornell Medicine where she is focusing her research to study the mechanisms
whereby radiation therapy can convert a tumor into an in situ individualized vaccine. In particular, Claire is leveraging
her multidisciplinary background to better understand how radiation should be administered to induce anti-tumor immunity.
She has published 28 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and have received many prestigious awards among which the
2014-Marie Curie Award from the Radiation Research Society (RRS), the 2015-AACR Susan G Komen Scholar-in-training award from
the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the 2017-AAI Early Career Faculty travel grant from the American Association
of Immunologists (AAI). Lorenzo Galluzzi is Assistant Professor of Cell Biology in Radiation Oncology at the Department of
Radiation Oncology of the Weill Cornell Medical College, Honorary Assistant Professor Adjunct with the Department of Dermatology
of the Yale School of Medicine, Honorary Associate Professor with the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Paris, and
Faculty Member with the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Biotechnology of the University of Ferrara, the Graduate
School of Pharmacological Sciences of the University of Padova, and the Graduate School of Network Oncology and Precision
Medicine of the University of Rome “La Sapienza. Moreover, he is Associate Director of the European Academy for Tumor
Immunology and Founding Member of the European Research Institute for Integrated Cellular Pathology.
best known for major experimental and conceptual contributions to the fields of cell death, autophagy, tumor metabolism and
