About the Speaker(s)

Dipanjan Chowdhury
Dipanjan Chowdhury, Ph. D
Chief of the Division of Radiation and Genome Stability, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Professor, Harvard Medical School

The Dipanjan Chowdhury Lab investigates how human cells sense and repair DNA damage. Loss of genome integrity due to DNA damage has long been established as a critical contributor to cancer and tumorigenesis. Our work, therefore, focuses on how cells maintain genome integrity. Through genetic, biochemical, and proteomic approaches, as well as collaboration with structural biologists, computational biologists, and mouse geneticists, we aim to achieve a better understanding of cancer etiology and the development of effective cancer diagnoses and therapies. Whether it is searching for potential treatments to radiation exposure or the causes and treatment of ovarian cancer, we strive for research that makes a positive impact.
