Víctor Andrés Arrieta González is a medical and scientific professional from Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico. He was enrolled in the inaugural M.D./Ph.D. program at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). During his medical and scientific training, Víctor Arrieta completed clinical rotations in several hospitals across Mexico City and Graz, Austria, in addition to working in various laboratories in Mexico and the USA. After acquiring his MD, Víctor embarked on his Ph.D. journey at Northwestern University in Chicago, where he contributed to pioneering research on biomarkers for immunotherapy in glioblastoma under the guidance of Dr. Adam Sonabend. Currently, Víctor works as a postdoctoral scientist at the Department of Neurosurgery of Northwestern University. He is not only focused on his research but is also actively pursuing a master’s degree in Health and Biomedical Informatics at Northwestern University.  Víctor’s research interest lies at the intersection of immunology, oncology, bioinformatics, and neurosurgery. He has a translational perspective that includes studies of immunotherapies for GBM patients, exploring DNA replication stress as a mechanism of anticancer therapies for gliomas, and devising innovative neurosurgical strategies to deliver therapies into the brain for the treatment of gliomas. His goal is to become a neurosurgeon-scientist with a strong emphasis on brain tumors.
