Biography

Dr. Dietrich is a medical oncologist in Orlando, FL. He completed his fellowships in hematology/oncology in the physician-scientist training track at the University of Texas Southwestern Track as a T32 scholar of the National Cancer Institute. He further holds doctorates in cancer biology from the German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany, and in molecular genetics from the University of Texas Southwestern Graduate School.  His expertise in molecular genetics translates into a clinical philosophy of matching tailored therapies to each patient’s individual tumor biology.

As a principal investigator in numerous precision medicine-based trials, Dr. Dietrich is focusing on the clinical development of novel anti-cancer agents. He also conducts clinical- translation research in genetic testing modalities, “liquid” biopsies, and the optimization of diagnostic findings.

As a fellow of the American College of Physicians and a board-certified internist, Dr. Dietrich believes in a comprehensive approach to his patients’ medical care. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles published in Cancer Cell, Cancer Research, Blood, Oncogene, Journal of Thoracic Oncology, Journal of Oncology Practice, and JAMA Oncology, as well as book chapters and abstracts. He has lectured extensively both nationally and internationally on the topics of thoracic malignancies, molecular genetics, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy applications.
