Current Fellows in the Trans-Divisional Research Program

Meet the fellows in the Trans-Divisional Research Program (TDRP) and learn about their work.

  • Aaron Bernstein, M.Phil.

    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.

  • Amber Hurson, Ph.D., M.P.H.

    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.

  • Parichoy Pal Choudhury, Ph.D.

    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.
