Current Fellows in the Trans-Divisional Research Program
Meet the fellows in the Trans-Divisional Research Program (TDRP) and learn about their work.
Mr. Bernstein, predoctoral fellow in TDRP, performs research focused on the development of machine learning algorithms for the identification and prognostic evaluation of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes in breast cancer histology slides. His mentors are Montserrat García-Closas, M.D., Dr.P.H., and Dr. Paul Pharoah at University of Cambridge.
Dr. Hurson, a postdoctoral fellow in TDRP, studies etiologic heterogeneity of breast cancer subtypes. Her doctoral research evaluated an RNA-based gene signature, which detects TP53 pathway function, as an additional etiologic and prognostic marker in breast cancer. Her mentor is Montserrat Garcia-Closas, M.D., Dr.P.H.
Dr. Pal Choudhury, research fellow in TDRP, studies the heterogeneity of risk factors across breast cancer subtypes and develops and validates subtype-specific risk prediction models for women of European and non-European ancestries.
