After receiving her Ph.D. in cancer biology/radiation biology at the University of Iowa, Dr. Sierra-Rivera had postdoctoral training in the pathology department at Brown University. She then went to Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, where she was an assistant professor. Her initial research focused on the molecular response of GSH to oxidative stress in various tumor models and later on growth factor modulation of human mammary epithelium during oncogenic transformation. She was also involved in investigations to determine how TGF-ß and tie2 receptor tyrosine kinase modulate brain tumor cells survival.
