Dr. Ebert is the Chair of Medical Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the George P. Canellos, MD and Jean S. Canellos Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, 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.
