The Institute for Precision Medicine hosts a monthly virtual speaker series via Zoom to highlight advances in Precision Medicine research and in Personalized care – not only at Pitt/UPMC but across the United States.

The next IPM Spring 2023 speaker series talk will be given by Todd Golub, M.D. on April 19th at 4:00pm via Zoom. Todd Golub is director of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and a founding core member of the institute. He joined the faculty of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School in 1997. At the same time, he served as the leader of cancer genomics at the Whitehead Institute/MIT Center for Genome Research.

Golub is a world-renowned physician-scientist who pioneered the application of genomics to cancer biology and therapeutic discovery. He is one of the first researchers to use genomic approaches to molecularly characterize human tumors, laying the foundation for the use of genomics to classify, diagnose, and treat cancer. Throughout his career, Golub has advocated for the free, rapid sharing of large-scale genomic data and tools to accelerate the pace of biomedicine and is deeply committed to patient-focused research.

In his talk titled “Perspectives on Cancer Precision Medicine” Golub will talk about new genomic tools and approaches that have had a lasting impact on cancer research and drug discovery.

Golub received his B.A. from Carleton College and his M.D. from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He completed his internship, residency, and fellowship training at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Please mark your calendars for April 19th at 4:00pm.
