Dr. Marquez educates future specialists in her position as a clinical professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
In her clinical practice, she specializes in breast cancer, but treats a broad spectrum of cancers including prostate, lung, colon, lymphoma, and brain tumors. For each patient, she develops a comprehensive, compassionate care plan customized to individual needs. Her goal is to deliver the most effective cancer treatment to help patients enjoy the best possible health and quality of life.
Dr. Marquez has conducted research and published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals: Clinical Cancer Research, Annals of Surgical Oncology, the Journal of Women’s Health, and others. Topics include innovations in surgical decision-making, advanced treatment of prostate cancer, and the effectiveness of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in treating larger brain tumors.
She also wrote the chapter on pediatric radiation therapy for the Textbook of Clinical Pediatrics.
She has made presentations to her peers at the annual meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology (ASTRO) and at the annual Radiation Oncology Conference. Topics include radiation therapy after a mastectomy and advanced management of cancer of the central nervous system
She received a grant to examine the recruitment and retention of minority patients in cancer research. The National Cancer Institute sponsored the study.
Dr. Marquez is a member of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology, American College of Radiology (ACR), and Society for Neurologic Oncology (SNO). She is a Fellow of the American College of Radiology (FACR).
She participates on multiple committees in the Stanford School of Medicine Clinical Educator Program. She also serves as a radiation oncology expert on the Global Online Breast Tumor Board. This board is sponsored by Massachusetts General Hospital and meets monthly to provide real-time expert opinions for breast cancer cases from cancer centers across the world, including Brazil, Poland, and the Philippines.
Andrew Philip Martella
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
BioDr. Martella is a fellowship-trained radiation oncologist and a clinical assistant professor of radiation oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
His clinical interests include gynecologic, breast, thoracic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and central nervous system cancers. His experience encompasses the full range of radiotherapy techniques, including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), CyberKnife radiosurgery, eye plaque brachytherapy, and prostate and gynecologic high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy.
Dr. Martella is dedicated to improving the quality of care and the patient experience. He deeply values a close relationship with his patients and their loved ones. He feels that each patient experiences healthcare in a unique and individual way. By recognizing and responding to those individual needs Dr. Martella provides a truly patient-centered experience. He has helped conduct research into noninvasive deep brain stimulation and chromosomal topography,and published on the topic of treating rectal cancer without radiation. He also was the primary contributing author of chapters in the book First Aid for the United States Medical Licensing Examination.
Dr. Martella has delivered presentations at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology. Topics include chemotherapy and radiotherapy in endometrial cancer.
Among the honors for scholarship that Dr. Martella has received, he graduated first in his class at Duke University School of Medicine. He was also elected during medical school into Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
Dr. Martella’s community service has included a position on the board of directors of Camp Good Days and Special Times, a nonprofit organization that provides services for children who have cancer, have a parent or sibling with cancer, or have lost a parent or sibling to the disease. He has served on several leadership roles and has a deep dedication to furthering diversity and inclusion throughout the healthcare system.
Basic Life Research Scientist, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Current Role at StanfordI am currently responsible for the design and delivery of the pre-clinical in-vivo irradiations with ultra-high dose-rate (FLASH), using a clinical Linac at the Cancer Center. I deliver irradiation for collaborators but also managing animal experiments for our group; from the development of tumors models and handling of the animals to the design of 3D printed shields for radiation and radiotherapy dosimetry.

Everett J. Moding, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy laboratory performs translational research using analysis of human samples to identify critical mediators of treatment resistance that can be validated in preclinical models and targeted to enhance the efficacy of cancer therapy.
Prithvi Mruthyunjaya, MD, MHS
Professor of Ophthalmology and, by courtesy, of Radiation Oncology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr Mruthyunjaya has maintained a broad research interest with publications in both ocular oncology and retinal diseases.
His focus is on multi-modal imaging of ocular tumors and understanding imaging clues that may predict vision loss after ocular radiation therapy. He coordinates multi-center research on the role of genetic testing and outcomes of treatments of ocular melanoma.
In the field of retinal diseases, his interests are in intra-operative imaging to enhance surgical accuracy.
