Additional Information

Bradley E. Bernstein, MD, PhD, is an institute member at the Broad Institute and a professor in the Department of Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He co-directs the Broad’s Epigenomics Program and interacts extensively with the Cell Circuits Program, the Cancer Program, and the Klarman Cell Observatory.

Dr. Bernstein’s research focuses on epigenetics — changes in gene activity governed by influences outside the genes themselves — and specifically how modifications to the protein scaffold called chromatin contribute to mammalian development and human cancer.

Dr. Bernstein’s honors and awards include a Howard Hughes Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for Physicians, a Career Award in the Biomedical Sciences from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, a junior faculty award from the Culpeper Foundation, election into the American Society for Clinical Investigation, and an Early Career Scientist award from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
