Elli Papaemmanuil

Team Leader, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, USA

Dr Elli Papaemmanuil, PhD is a team leader at the Computational Oncology Service, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and is also serving as Associate Director for the Center of Hematological Malignancies at MSKCC. Trained in the UK in population genetics (Institute of cancer research) and cancer genomics (Wellcome Trust Sanger Center, University of Cambridge) she has led research into the discovery of cancer gene drivers of hematological neoplasms. More recently, Dr Papaemmanuil has developed experimental and analytical methods to support molecular characterization of large patient cohorts and study the genetic and clinical inter-relationships of leukemias. She currently leads large population genomic profiling studies in myeloid neoplasms (AML, MDS, MPN) and in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia with the aim to characterize how the molecular architecture of the disease and the corresponding clonal relationships determine clinical phenotype and response to therapy with the aim to deliver patient tailored diagnostic and risk stratification algorithms.
