Elli Papaemmanuil, PhD

Our lab is a collective of clinical, computational, molecular and mathematic research investigators with an interest in studying the role of acquired mutations in cancer development, and how these determine clinical phenotype and response to therapy. Our mission is to execute research that informs and moves clinical practices in oncology forward. We have strong expertise in genome profiling analysis, a proven track record on the development of high-throughput laboratory and analytical pipelines (bioinformatics and statistical), and integrating large and complex genomic datasets. We have formed a strong network of research and clinical collaborations to pursue innovative studies in cancer research.

We like to perform ambitious research, but operate in a fun, collaborative, and team-oriented environment, and we are strongly committed to mentoring young scientists through internal and international internship schemes.

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.

Elli Papaemmanuil discloses the following relationships and financial interests:

  • Isabl Technologies
