Tumor Model Strategy Lead, Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science

After receiving her postdoctoral training at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Ivanova started as a scientist in Oncogenomics group of the Center for Applied Cancer Science at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. With her great interest in imaging and microscopy, she has employed a broad repertoire of imaging applications in her research, from spectral karyotyping used to advance the understanding of the mechanisms behind chromosomal instability and tumorigenesis, to high-throughput screening for biomarker discovery. As a senior scientist at the Belfer Center, Dr. Ivanova is currently evaluating mechanisms of immune- and targeted-therapy response and resistance in 3D ex vivo culture systems.
