Cancer Computational Methods Expert Martin Aryee, PhD Joins Data Science Faculty
The Department of Data Science at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is excited to announce that Martin Aryee, PhD joins our faculty on January 1, 2022.
Dr. Aryee’s research involves the development and application of statistical methods for genomics. Most of his work centers on cancer epigenomics, with a focus on the role of spatial organization within tumors at scales ranging from DNA folding to the tumor microenvironment. He is also involved in the development of tools to ensure the safe translation of CRISPR-based genome editing technologies into clinical use. His research contributions include several methods for the analysis of DNA methylation data and insights into the role of disordered chromatin organization in cancer.
Dr. Aryee will be Associate Professor, Pathology Department at Harvard Medical School and an independent faculty member in Data Science. He will also lead a team of staff scientists as the Director of Hematologic Malignancies, Biostatistics and Computational Biology at Dana-Farber. He received his PhD in Biostatistics from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and completed his post-doctoral work at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
