The Sheltzer Lab was founded in August 2015 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. We’re working to decipher the genetics of cancer progression using a variety of in silico, in vitro, and in vivo techniques.
We’re particularly interested in the role of aneuploidy in tumorigenesis. We’re developing novel systems to study genome dosage imbalances, in hopes of generating therapies that can specifically eliminate aneuploid cancers while leaving normal cells unharmed.
- January, 2019 – we’re hiring postdocs! Interested candidates should send a cover letter and CV to Dr. Sheltzer.
- December, 2018 – check out survival.cshl.edu, a new web resource that we built to help scientists identify survival associations in cancer.
- December, 2018 – our lab’s new paper on prognostic genomic changes in cancer has been published in eLife.
- February, 2018 – our lab’s new paper on MELK and mitosis has been published in eLife.
