Marcus Bosenberg, MD, PhD
A practicing dermatopathologist, Dr. Bosenberg directs a laboratory that investigates several aspects of melanoma biology, including the cellular mechanisms and genetics of metastasis, tumor immunology, and prognostic and diagnostic markers. His laboratory has developed several widely used mouse models in order to study how melanoma forms and progresses, to test new melanoma therapies, and to determine how the immune system can be stimulated to fight cancer. He is principal investigator of collaborative immuno-oncology grants from the National Cancer Institute’s Immuno-Oncology Translational Network and Cancer Systems Biology Network.
Dr. Bosenberg is also an active mentor to undergraduate, graduate, medical, and MD-PhD students in his laboratory.
