Our lab is a collective of clinical, computational, molecular and mathematic research investigators with an interest to study the role of acquired mutations in cancer development and how these determine clinical phenotype and response to therapy. Our mission is to execute research that informs and moves clinical practices in oncology forward. We have strong expertise in genome profiling analysis proven track record on the development of high-throughput laboratory and analytical pipelines (bioinformatics and statistical) and integrate large and complex genomic datasets. We have formed a strong network of research and clinical collaborations, to pursue innovative studies in cancer research.
We like to perform ambitious research but operate in a fun, collaborative and team oriented environment and we are strongly committed to mentoring young scientists through internal and international internship schemes.
Elli Papaemmanuil, PhD
Research FocusMolecular geneticist Elli Papaemmanuil performs systematic interrogations of well annotated clinical trial cohorts in leukemia and cancer to explore how the compound genetic and clonal architecture in patients leukemias and tumors dictate clinical phenotype, disease progression and clinical outcomes.
