Jose Javier Bravo-Cordero, PhD Email Jose Javier Bravo-Cordero
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology
Dr. Bravo-Cordero was trained as a cell biologist and molecular biologist. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Autonoma University of Madrid (Spain) and his PhD in Cancer Biology at the Spanish National Cancer Institute (CNIO, Spain) working on mechanisms of tumor cell invasion in 3D collagen matrices by using high-resolution imaging.
During his postdoctoral training, he extended his expertise in breast cancer metastasis by applying unique imaging technologies such as FRET microscopy and intravital imaging at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. He studied the spatiotemporal activation of RhoGTPases during invasion by using a series of imaging tools (FRET biosensors) to visualize GTPase activation in real time in living cells.
Dr. Bravo-Cordero's expertise ranges from microscopy (FRET microscopy, in vivo imaging) to cell biology and mouse models. His laboratory is investigating the mechanisms of tumor cell dissemination and metastasis of breast cancer by applying high-resolution imaging techniques.
In September 2015, he joined the Division of Hematology and Oncology, the Tisch Cancer Institute and the Microscopy CORE at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai as an assistant professor.

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.
Below are financial relationships with industry reported by Dr. Bravo-Cordero during 2020 and/or 2021. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Other activities: Examples include, but are not limited to, committee participation, data safety monitoring board (DSMB) membership
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.
