About Marwa Tantawy

Marwa Tantawy, Ph.D., is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacotherapy and Translational Research at the University of Florida (UF) College of Pharmacy . Dr. Tantawy received a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology in 2016 from the College of Science, Ain Shams University, Egypt. She also got a master’s degree in immunology in 2010 from the College of Science, Cairo University, Egypt. Before Joining the UF Faculty in 2023, she completed a three-year post-doctoral fellowship in cardiovascular pharmacogenomics at the UF Pharmacotherapy and Translational Research Department. Dr. Tantawy has expertise in molecular oncology and laboratory experiments, particularly genetic association studies, including genome-wide association analyses (GWAS), genotyping, miRNA sequencing, Next Generation Sequencing, methylation, and cell culture. Dr. Tantawy’s current research focuses on adverse drug events such as cardiotoxicity related to cancer treatment, with a particular emphasis on multi-omics (genomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, and proteomics) to identify early detection markers that help in treatment management and reveal the underlying mechanisms.
