Ignacio Garrido-Laguna, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor, University of Utah School of Medicine
Ignacio Garrido-Laguna, MD, PhD is an assistant professor of oncology (tenure-track) at the University of Utah School of Medicine and a member of the Experimental Therapeutics Program at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). At HCI, he sees patients with gastrointestinal cancers and patients enrolled in Phase I trials.
Garrido-Laguna’s primary research interest is pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA). Dr.Garrido-Laguna and Dr.Kadrmas are co-PI in R21CA182977 to evaluate the role of FDG/FLT/Oxygen labelled water PET to predict response to nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine in patients with borderline resectable or locally advanced pancreatic cancer undergoing induction chemotherapy. He and his team are also leading efforts to identify exceptional responders to therapy among pancreatic cancer patients enrolled in first-in-man studies in the last decade. He is PI of multiple clinical trials including novel therapies such as immunotherapies that hold promise in the treatment of this disease.
Before joining HCI, Garrido-Laguna was a clinical fellow in the Phase I program at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship in the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. While at Hopkins, he worked extensively in patient derived xenografts. His research showed that stroma (tissue around the tumor that gives nutritioin to cancer cells) is involved in resistance to chemotherapy in pancreatic cancer. Garrido-Laguna finished his internship and residency in medical oncology at Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre in Madrid, Spain. Garrido-Laguna received his medical degree from the School of Medicine of Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain.

Dr. Garrido gave good information about various subjects concerning me. He said he would study the last colonoscopy and let me know if 1, 2, or 3 years would be an appropriate time to wait for the next one. I thank him for that especially.UofU Patient February 17, 2014
Long delay between appointment time and when the doctor showed up precluded much needed discussion. Doctor wanted another test and rushed me off to that. The only time worth anything belongs to the doctor regardless of the patient expense and travel difficulty.UofU Patient February 11, 2014

Provider's perceived caring and concern have been difficult to tolerate. However, he is in his professional practice very bright, skilled and knowledgeable. Therefore, I would not hesitate to recommend him to a potential patient who doesn't need a high degree of gentle and kind aspects in their care.UofU Patient August 07, 2013

Our visit was cut a little short due to having to go to tumor board. Dr. Gerido explained that, and invited us to come back after he was done to further answer any questions. I didn't have a lot (of questions), but I was very impressed by this. He was very caring and concerned.UofU Patient October 01, 2012
The doctor, nurse, and assistant were kind, helpful, and efficient.UofU Patient June 04, 2012
when you are facing cancer... or for that matter, this care provider gives a complete picture of the care needed and is totally thorough in the matter of taking time to meticulously cover every detail of patient diagnosis, prognosis, and support care etc.
