Adilia Hormigo, MD, PhD is Director of the Neuro-Oncology Program for The Mount SinaiHospital and the Mount Sinai Health System, and Associate Professor in the Department of Neurology, Medicine (Division of Hematology-Oncology) and Neurosurgery. She is a neuro-oncologist specializing in the care of patients with primary brain tumors, CNS metastases, and the neurological complications of cancer and its treatment. She employs a multidisciplinary team approach to ensure that patients receive compassionate, comprehensive care.
Dr. Hormigo obtained her MD with honors from the University of Lisbon Medical School in Portugal, and her PhD from New York University. She completed residencies in Neurology at the University Hospital of Lisbon Medical School, Portuguese Oncological Institute and New York Presbyterian-Weill Medical College of Cornell University and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. She completed both research and clinical neuro-oncology fellowships under Jerome B. Posner. She served as faculty at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Cornell University. She trained a number of fellows, many of whom are faculty in leading programs of neuro-oncology in the country and abroad.
Her clinical and translational research focuses on new strategies including personalized treatment for patients with brain tumors with emphasis on immunotherapy, developing new biomarkers and studying the microenvironment of brain tumors. Her goal is to achieve the highest level of patient care and clinical excellence. She sees patients at the Ruttenberg Treatment Center of the Tisch Cancer Institute.

N1174: Phase I/Comparative Randomized Phase II Trial of TRC105 plus Bevacizumab versus Bevacizumab in Bevacizumab-Naïve Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
The purpose of this research is to study any good and bad effects of combining bevacizumab with another chemotherapy drug called TRC105, and comparing the combination to the usual approach which is chemotherapy with bevacizumab alone. TRC 105 is not approved by the FDA for ...

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr. Hormigo has not yet completed reporting of Industry relationships.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
