arr3 Oncologist Professor Mariano Bizzarri

Mariano Bizzarri was born on October 12, 1957. In 1975 he earned a BA with honors in ProfBizzarrismall tSa 169X237
Biochemistry in Paris. He enrolled in the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at the University of
Rome La Sapienza, where he graduated with the highest grades and with honors in 1981, writing
a thesis on "Serum levels of Ribonuclease in patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas".

After enrolling in Oncology as his specialization, he did a PhD in "Experimental Chemotherapy
and Surgery" in 2000. Since 2001 he has also been a researcher. He is currently a professor of
Clinical Pathology at the 2nd School of Specialization in Oncology at the University La Sapienza.
He is also a professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Propaedeutics at the same university for the
BA program in Radiological Technology. Furthermore he teaches at the master’s degree program
in "Gastronomic Sciences and Disorders Food" sponsored by the University La Sapienza.
He teaches "Neuro-psychoimmunology and Cancer" at the School of Specialization in Psychology
organized by the School of Comparative Psychotherapy of Florence. In cooperation with Prof.
Filippo Conti, he helped form the Italian school of metabolomics analysis, paying special
attention to the study of cellular regulation of apoptosis and cell cycle. He created and founded
the Carlo Ferri foundation for the Study and Treatment of Cancer (Monterotondo), where he
served as Secretary until May 1989.

He has dedicated his professional career to scientific research in oncology, specifically studying
problems related to chemical carcinogenesis, the relationship between nutrition and cancer and
interrelationships Tumor-Host (relationship between Mind-Cancer-Cancer Immunity). From a
clinical point of view, has focused his research on diagnostics, clinical diagnosis and treatment of
urological tumors.

In association with other Italian and international centers, he is currently working on a proposal
for a new carcinogenic theory, primarily focused on cancer as a tissue disease, governed by non-
linear dynamics and complex systems (Systems Biology Studies). Over a decade of research led
him to the discovery of new anti-cancer compounds, extracted from the stem cells of fish and
plants, developing two new patents. His research has allowed us to achieve significant advances in
the treatment of tumors of the liver, pancreas, colon and breast cancer. He is a member of the
scientific committee for the Journal of Anthropology and Philosophy and the International
Journal of Tumor Marker Oncology. He is chairman of the scientific committee for the journal
Space Magazine. He has participated in more than 70 national and international scientific
conferences, both lecturing and presenting papers. He is the author of 95 publications, including
61 in English. He is the author of several books, some of which have been translated abroad,
related to scientific or popular topics, as well as numerous scientific and philosophical essays.
