The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT

Director, Cancer Program:  Todd Golub

The Broad's Cancer Program brings together a scientific community focused on understanding the basic molecular mechanisms of cancer and applying this knowledge to transform the practice of cancer medicine. The work includes systematic and comprehensive elucidation of cancers in terms of DNA alterations, RNA profiles, proteomic signatures and functional responses. Scientists in the Cancer Program share ideas and launch collaborative projects to tackle key challenges. In addition, several Associate members are working at Broad in addition to their primary labs on cancer-related projects, collaborating with scientists both in the Cancer program as well as the scientific platforms across the institute.
