Olivia Pérez de Acha López, MD

Visiting Research Scholar


Olivia Perez de Acha Lopez comes to us from Madrid, Spain. She recently received her MD from Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. Her past research was done at the Hospital Puerta de Hierro studying TKI drug resistance in liquid biopsies from patients with EGFR+ lung adenocarcinoma. Before joining us at CU, Olivia also spent last summer at the NIH studying exosomes as potential biomarkers in Alzheimer's Disease. In our group, she is evaluating immunotherapy targets, with a particular focus on the daratumumab-refractory setting. Her goal is to ultimately become a Hematologist/Oncologist, and is interviewing for the 2021 residency match in the U.S. In her free time, Olivia is a prolific traveler, having volunteered in underserved communities in diverse locations including Cuba, New Zealand, Indonesia and Cambodia. She is also a "crazy skier”, and has the goal to visit all ski resorts in North America.
