Dr Cristina Sanchez PhD video interview on medical marijuana and cancer

Biochemist Dr Cristina Sanchez PhD

Dr Cristina Sanchez PhD answers questions about medical cannabis also commonly known as medical marijuana.

Cristina has studied the effect of cannabinoids on lipid and carbohydrate intermediate metabolism first and on cancer cell proliferation later. She obtained her PhD with Honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in 2000. During her postdoc at Dr. Piomelli’s laboratory (University of California Irvine, 2000-2003) she studied the involvement of another group of bioactive lipids (lysophosphatidic acid and related compounds) on pain initiation.

In 2004, Cristina returned to Spain with a “Ramón y Cajal” contract (aimed at repatriating Spanish researchers from abroad) and she started coordinating a new line of research within Dr. Guzmán’s laboratory. In particular, the goal of her research is to understand and exploit cannabinoids as potential antitumoral agents in breast cancer. More recently, she has also focused her attention on new cannabinoid receptors and their possible involvement in cannabinoid antitumoral action in breast cancer and other type of tumors.
In this interview Cristina discusses her research on cannabinoids and it's effect on cancer cells, whilst also answering several interesting questions from patients with various types of cancer.
