Yuanyuan Zhang

Yuanyuan Zhang obtained her PhD degree in Bioinformatics from Peking University, where she focused on tumor immune microenvironment and cancer immunotherapy in Prof. Zemin Zhang’s lab. She joined the Bernstein lab in 2022, and has interests in deciphering the epigenetic regulations of tumor development and drug resistance using single cell technologies.

Salva Casani Galdon

Salva is a computational biologist interested in how chromatin changes drive aberrant gene expression regulation in cancer cells. He is currently working in defining transcriptional regulatory circuits in liposarcoma.

Sonia Cohen, MD, PhD

Sonia is a surgeon-scientist interested in understanding gene regulation in cancer.

Justin Becker, MD, PhD

Justin Becker is a medical oncology fellow at Mass General and Dana-Farber. He completed his MD and PhD at the University of Pennsylvania, where his graduate work with Kenneth Zaret focused on the organization of human heterochromatin and its role in maintaining cell identity. Justin is currently a physician at Mass General, where he completed … Continued

Alba Meira, PhD

Alba joined the lab in 2021 as a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow. Originally from Spain, she undertook her PhD at the University of Oxford before moving to Boston. She is interested in deciphering in the epigenetic mechanisms that lead to tumor development and evolution using single cell technologies.

Zeyu Chen, PhD

Interests: Epigenetic circuits in immune cells; High dimensional profiling in tumor microenvironments Zeyu Chen did his undergraduate at Peking University in Beijing, China, studying stem cell genetic engineering in Dr. Hongkui Deng’s lab. He then worked as a research assistant in Dr. Richard Flavell’s lab at Yale for one year, and did his Ph.D. at University … Continued

Elena Torlai Triglia, PhD

Computational and molecular biologist, interested in multidisciplinary approaches to understand gene regulation in healthy cells and during cancer development. Orcid: 0000-0002-6059-0116  https://www.linkedin.com/in/elena-torlai-triglia/ https://elenatt.github.io/cv/

Chadi El Farran, PhD

Chadi El Farran is a Lebanese national who joined the lab as a Research Fellow. Chadi is interested in deciphering the cell-cell communication patterns that define the fate and function of these cells. He is also keen on studying the epigenetic and transcriptomic changes which are associated with diseases.

Carmen Adriaens, PhD

Carmen is a Research Fellow originally from Belgium. She is intrigued by how nuclear shape contributes to nuclear function and how cells have evolved to regulate the nuclear architecture to define identity in normal physiology and disease.
