Adilia Hormigo, MD, PhD is Director of the Neuro-Oncology Program for The Mount Sinai Hospital and the Mount Sinai Health System, and Associate Professor in the Department of Neurology with a secondary appointment in the Departments of Medicine, and Neurosurgery. Dr. Hormigo is a neuro-oncologist specializing in the care of patients with primary brain tumors, CNS metastases, and the neurological complications of cancer and its treatment. She employs a multidisciplinary team approach to ensure that patients receive compassionate, comprehensive care.
Dr. Hormigo completed a residency in Neurology in Portugal, at the University Hospital of Lisbon Medical School and Portuguese Oncological Institute, as well as at New York Presbyterian-Weill Medical College of Cornell University and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center where she completed both research and clinical neuro-oncology fellowships under Jerome B. Posner and served as Assistant Professor of Neurology and Assistant Member. There she trained a number of fellows, many of whom are now junior faculty in leading programs of neuro-oncology in the country and abroad. Dr. Hormigo obtained her MD with honors from the University of Lisbon Medical School in Portugal, and her PhD from New York University.
Prior to joining the Mount Sinai team, Dr. Hormigo served as Associate Professor in the Departments of Neurology, Oncology, Neurosurgery, and the Center for Translational Neuromedicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Her translational research has focused on studying tumor microenvironment, developing biomarkers and personalized new treatments for patients with brain tumors. Her goal is to achieve the highest level of patient care and clinical excellence for the neuro-oncology program. She sees patients at the Ruttenberg Treatment Center of the Tisch Cancer Institute.

- A Phase III CLINICAL TRIAL EVALUATING DCVax®-L, AUTOLOGOUS DENDRITIC CELLS PULSED WITH TUMOR LYSATE ANTIGEN FOR THE TREATMENT OF GLIOBLASTOMA MULTIFORME
The goal of this clinical research trial is to assess the activity and safety of an investigational (experimental) agent called DCVax-L which is made from your own blood cells that have been exposed to your own tumor tissue. Comparison of survival times and tumor growth ...
- N1174: Phase I/Comparative Randomized Phase II Trial of TRC105 plus Bevacizumab versus Bevacizumab in Bevacizumab-Naïve Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
The purpose of this research is to study any good and bad effects of combining bevacizumab with another chemotherapy drug called TRC105, and comparing the combination to the usual approach which is chemotherapy with bevacizumab alone. TRC 105 is not approved by the FDA f...
