Robert J. Gillies, PhD.

Robert J. Gillies and his lab are focused on understanding cancers as complex, heterogeneous and dynamic systems. Along with his long-time collaborator, Robert A. Gatenby, they share a core belief that, due to genomic plasticity and microenvironmental heterogeneity, cancers can only be understood through the lens of Darwinian Evolution. Dr. Gillies is an experimentalist whose work spans molecular, cellular, animal models, and image analytics. He is the Martin Silberger Chair of Cancer Physiology, Director of the Center of Excellence in Cancer Imaging and Technology, and Scientific Director of the Small Animal Imaging Lab, SAIL.

Quantitative Imaging (QI)

Quantitative Imaging is an indispensable approach to study intratumoral heterogeneity. Dr. Gillies' group develops and applies Image Analytics to histological and radiological images to investigate the spatial relationships of cells and microenvironments in clinical and pro-clinical tumors.

Projects include:

Tumor pH

Solid tumors are acidic due to elevated glycolysis combined with poor perfusion. Dr. Gillies has developed methods to image tumor pH, and study the causes and consequence of this acidity. Recent focus has been on developing methods to interfere with tumor acidosis for improving therapy in the clinic.

Projects include:

Physical Sciences in Oncology Center at Moffitt Cancer Center
