We are dedicated to training the next generation of exceptional scientists in our laboratory. Regardless of whether you are an undergraduate student or a senior postdoc, we value your contribution to our lab community at any stage in your career. It is at the heart of our mission as an academic laboratory that you thrive to the next level in your career. With your start in our lab, we tailor a training plan to your specific strengths and needs, develop actionable teaching goals, and identify potential co-mentors and required resources. Our teaching includes biweekly meetings, peer mentorship, and a joint seminar series.
All projects in our lab have immediate potential for clinical translational in view, but it requires a long way to go from a computational finding to a clinical therapy. Cancer is a complicated puzzle, and our scientists bring complementary pieces to the table from their different training backgrounds. We thrive on collaboration, collegiality, and data sharing. While scientists maintain ownership of their project, we encourage collaborations between different disciplines, such as integrating computational and experimental strategies. As a team, we solve challenges that are impossible to overcome for a single discipline.
The Harvard community brings students and researchers from all over the world together to push the boundaries of scientific knowledge. Likewise, tumor patients have very different cultural backgrounds. It is our core belief that our scientists' personal and cultural experiences are essential to advancing and diversifying the clinical care of patients. Our lab is dedicated to being an inclusive workplace that promotes inclusion and celebrates diversity. Whether you have been living in Boston your entire life or just recently moved here from a different country, we are excited to learn more about your story!
If you feel that science can be demanding, exhausting, and require long work hours, you are not alone. Things are much easier with your colleagues' warmth, kindness, and smiles. We consider mutual respect and open communication the glue that holds our lab together. Our projects actively avoid competition between members in our lab. We respect our weaknesses and build each other’s strengths. Our regular social gatherings build team spirit, and town hall meetings identify issues that we can work on together. Our lab community creates an environment where we can thrive to our fullest potential.
