Research Overview

  • Dr. Guy is board-certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology, and her research interests include liver cancer and evaluating patients for transplant.
  • She and her colleagues at CPMC pursue translational research into the molecular signatures of liver cancer, toward earlier diagnoses and more effective, personalized therapies.
  • Through Dr. Guy’s leadership, the liver cancer program runs clinical trials to evaluate new chemotherapeutic and biologic therapies, and incorporates outcomes research to assess patient characteristics and their response to therapy.
  • The clinical trials program includes first- and second-line chemotherapies for chemotherapy-naïve patients and in patients for whom conventional chemotherapy has been unsuccesful.

Training
 

Dr. Guy received her M.D. and Masters in Clinical Research at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). She completed residency training and a fellowship at UCSF Medical Center, where she also served as Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine before joining CPMC.
