Michael Spiotto, MD, PhD, specializes in treating patients with head and neck cancer. Whenever possible, he uses image-guided radiation therapy to target a tumor more precisely while reducing damage to surrounding tissue.
Dr. Spiotto currently serves as the primary investigator on a study examining the role of non-genotoxic inhibitors (agents that slow chemical reactions without damaging genetic tissue) in the spread of head and neck cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). By studying the origin of HPV-induced cancers and understanding how they metastasize, he hopes to develop new treatment protocols and prevent relapse.
An accomplished author, Dr. Spiotto's work has been published in scientific journals such as the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Immunity, Nature Medicine and Cancer Research. In addition, he has been a the recipient of several notable awards, including: the American Board of Radiology Holman Pathway, given to a trainee with exceptional clinical and research abilities; the University of Chicago's Leon O. Jacobson Basic Science Prize; and the John Van Prohaska Award for outstanding potential in teaching, research and clinical medicine.
