Principal Investigator – Jason Sheltzer

Jason Sheltzer received an A.B. in Molecular Biology from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  At MIT, Jason worked in the laboratory of Dr. Angelika Amon to characterize the effects of aneuploidy on genome stability and tumorigenesis.  Following graduation, Jason established his own research group as a Fellow at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

Nicole Sayles

Nicole joined the lab in November 2015, after graduating from Clark University with a B.A. in Biology.  Nicole is using CRISPR/Cas9 technology to generate novel models of genome dosage imbalances in vitro and in vivo.

Ann Lin

Ann joined the lab in October 2015.  Ann is an undergraduate at Stony Brook University, and is majoring in Biochemistry.  Ann and Chris are testing cancer lethality-associated genes for oncogenic activity.

Chris Giuliano

Chris joined the lab in October 2015.  Chris is an undergraduate at Stony Brook University, and is double-majoring in Chemistry and Applied Math.  Ann and Chris are testing cancer lethality-associated genes for oncogenic activity.

 

 

Anand Vasudevan – postdoc

Anand joined the lab in January 2017.  Anand is studying the relationship between aneuploidy and metastasis

 

 

Christine Scaduto – postdoc/DoD Breast Cancer Fellow

Christine joined the lab in July 2017.  Christine is developing novel methods to alter chromosome copy number in cancer cells.  Christine is supported by a DoD Breast Cancer Breakthrough Fellowship.

 

 

Devon Lukow – grad student

Devon joined the lab in August 2017.  Devon is working to understand how aneuploidy and CIN can affect the susceptibility of cancer cells to different chemotherapy agents.
