See curriculum
Dr. Aparicio is an Associate Professor in the Genitourinary Medical Oncology Department at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. She earned her medical degree from Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in Madrid, Spain. Following her residency at West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, UCLA School of Medicine, she completed a fellowship in medical Oncology and Hematology at USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, LAC Medical Center, Keck School of Medicine, Los Angeles, CA.

Dr. Aparicio has focused her research efforts on characterizing a clinically distinct subset of the advanced prostate cancer disease, the aggressive variant prostate cancers, which is estimated to constitute up to one third of the disease. She believes that her ongoing research will ultimately enhance the care she is able to provide to her clinical patients and to those in the community afflicted with the same disease.
