Metabolic Therapeutics: the science behind exploiting weaknesses in cancer metabolism.

In the third episode of the Beating Brain Cancer podcast we had the great pleasure of interviewing Dr. Angela Poff, Research Associate in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida.

Dr. Angela Poff

Dr. Poff works in the Laboratory of Nutritional and Metabolic Medicine under the mentorship of Dr. Dominic D'Agostino. Her research focuses on the development and testing of non-toxic metabolic therapies for cancer and neurological disorders.

Dr. Poff's research focuses primarily on vivo research using rodent models with metastatic cancer derived from human glioblastoma cell lines.

The aim of her work is to observe the effects of nutritional ketosis, exogenous ketones and hyperbaric oxygen therapy and outline the underlying synergistic anti-cancer mechanisms behind these treatments.
