Professor of Research, University of Barcelona. JLLOVET EDUCATION/TRAINING (Begin with baccalaureate or other initial professional education, such as nursing, and include postdoctoral training.) Autonomous University of Barcelona,Spain
Josep M Llovet, M.D, PhD
, is a co-leader of the HCC program and member of the Tisch Cancer Institute Basic
Translational Research Committee and the Executive Management Committee. Dr. Llovet is a Professor of Medicine and
Director of the Liver Cancer Research Program at Mount Sinai. He has devoted the last 15 years of his career to the study
of the molecular pathogenesis and treatment of liver cancer. He is an unparalleled authority on the clinical development of
novel treatments for HCC, having led the highly successful SHARP trial as the International PI that established sorafenib
as the first molecularly targeted therapy approved for the treatment of HCC. In addition to his NIH funded studies
establishing new molecular classifications of HCC, he initiated and oversees the International HCC Consortium, a
consortium of basic and translational researchers, including Dana-Farber- MIT (Boston), Hospital Clinic (Barcelona) and
National Cancer Institute (Milan). Through these efforts, his research teams have defined new molecular classifications of
HCC based on integrative genomics approaches that incorporate genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and epigenetic
information to define oncogenic drivers and predictors of outcome in patients with HCC. Dr. Llovet is currently
international PI on 3 major pivotal trials assessing adjuvant and primary treatments of HCC, and oversees highly active
translational research programs at Mount Sinai.
