Dr. Dmitriy Zamarin
Dr. Dmitriy Zamarin, MD, Ph.D., is a medical oncologist specializing in the care of women with gynecologic cancers, including cervical, ovarian, and endometrial cancers. Zamarin’s clinical and laboratory research is focused on the development of new ways to use the immune system to treat cancer, and he is involved in clinical trials evaluating novel immunotherapy drugs in patients with cancer. He is particularly interested in genetically engineered oncolytic viruses, an emerging class of immune therapeutic drugs that have shown significant clinical promise in the recent years. By manipulating the oncolytic viruses and the immune system, Zamarin is exploring different ways to enhance the immune recognition of tumors and to develop novel treatment strategies that would be applicable to different cancer types. Amongst his multiple awards and commendations both nationally and internationally, he was awarded the 2014 Bladder Cancer Awareness Network Young Investigator, the 2013 Conquer Cancer Foundation ASCO Young Investigator Award, Damon Runyon Foundation Fellowship Award, and the 2012 Celgene Future Leaders in Hematology Award.
