Alex Bloemendal is a computational scientist at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and at the Analytic and Translational Genetics Unit of Massachusetts General Hospital. As a member of Broad institute member Ben Neale’s team, Bloemendal builds computational infrastructure to enable biologists to harness “big data” and analyze the genetics of disease.
Anna Greka, an institute member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, is a practicing nephrologist and scientist who studies the basic molecular mechanisms of kidney disease in order to eventually develop targeted therapies. She is also an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and an associate physician in the Renal Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Siddhartha Jaiswal is an attending pathologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and a postdoctoral fellow in Ben Ebert’s lab at the Broad Institute studying age-related diseases. His research is focused on the relationship between genetic mutations, cell biology, and aging.
Nikhil Wagle is a medical oncologist who studies cancer genomics and precision cancer medicine. He characterizes the genomes of patient tumor samples to better understand the molecular roots of cancer and drug resistance and to identify mutations that can be targeted with available treatments.
Moran Yassour is investigating how different methods of childbirth affect children’s gut microbiomes.
Roby Bhattacharyya is an attending physician in infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and a postdoctoral researcher in Deb Hung's lab studying antibiotic resistance. He seeks to understand how bacteria adapt to the most powerful antibiotics and design rapid methods for detecting resistance.
