Dr. Soares is a medical oncologist with a focus in GI cancers. Her main clinical and research focus is on pancreatic cancer and neuroendocrine tumors. She is a  member of NANETs and ENETs. She  has significant experience with clinical trials and was previously the section leader for the NET program at the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center. In 2018, Dr. Soares was named one of 40 Under 40 in Cancer, an awards program identifying and recognizing the contributions being made across the field of oncology by individuals under the age of 40 years old. This recognition, created by The Lynx Group™ and McGivney Global Advisors, celebrates the contributions these individuals  are making to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.

Dr. Soares received the NANETS 2020 Theranostics Investigator Scholarship (NTIG) award for her proposal, “The Role of HDAC Inhibitors in Combination to PRRT in NET Xenografts.” She will be mentored by Kathryn Morton, MD, Professor of Radiology at the University of Utah. The NTIG is intended to push forward the boundaries of molecularly targeted radionuclide therapy and diagnostics for patients with neuroendocrine tumors.
