Biography

After obtaining his MD degree from the Autonomous University Barcelona, Dr. Llor trained in basic research and Internal Medicine at the University of Chicago and completed his GI fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He complemented his training with a PhD degree in molecular biology from the University of Barcelona. A clinically active gastroenterologist, Dr. Llor’s research and clinical interests relate to colorectal cancer. He has a very active basic and translational research program mainly focusing on two different aspects of colorectal cancer: hereditary and familial forms, and disparities in colorectal cancer. This work has resulted in over 60 scientific publications in this field. He has made seminal contributions to the field of Lynch syndrome diagnosis as well as in the definition of other non-polyposis syndromic colorectal cancer cases. Some of his most recent work is bound to make a decisive contribution to the understanding of disparities in colorectal cancer.

Dr. Llor is the Medical Director of the Colorectal Cancer Prevention Program at Yale University and Smilow Cancer Center and he sees patients at Yale. He is a member of the leadership council and Chair of the International Committee of the American Gastroenterological Association. He is commonly invited to lecture in colorectal cancer genetics in the US and abroad.
