Department of Medicine Research Day - 2021

Keynote Speaker: Benjamin L. Ebert, MD, PhD, Harvard Medical School


The Department of Medicine's 2021 Research Day will be held on April 19, 2021 virtually.

This year's keynote speaker is Benjamin L. Ebert, MD, PhD, who is a George P. Canellos, MD, and Jean S. Canellos Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Chair of Medical Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, and an Institute Member of the Broad Institute. 

Dr. Ebert's research focuses on the molecular basis and treatment of hematologic malignancies, with a particular focus on myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).

In large-scale genetic analyses of patient samples, his lab has identified somatic mutations that predict prognosis and response to therapies in MDS patients. His research also focuses on a pre-malignant state for hematologic malignancies, clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP), which also increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

More details on the agenda TBA.  

We highly encourage students, residents, post-docs/fellows, and junior faculty in the Department of Medicine to submit abstracts for participation in our online virtual poster session. All abstracts should be submitted by March 15, 5pm.
