Dr. Beroukhim is a practicing neuro-oncologist with interests in tumor evolution, with an emphasis on brain cancers, and in alterations in chromosome structure across all cancers. He has contributed to the development of a variety of computational methods for the analysis of alterations in chromosome structure and has applied them to tens of thousands of cancers across dozens of cancer types. He has also tested hypotheses generated by these analyses in a variety of model systems, discovering new oncogenic events, therapeutic targets, and treatment strategies. He obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge and his M.D. at UCSF, and trained in Oncology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where he currently maintains his laboratory and clinical practice.
