Research & Publications
Dr. Jason Sheltzer received his PhD from MIT, where he worked in the laboratory of Dr. Angelika Amon in the Koch Institute for Cancer Research. As a graduate student at MIT, Dr. Sheltzer studied the effects of aneuploidy, or chromosome copy number imbalances, on cellular physiology. His work revealed several novel consequences of aneuploidy, including unanticipated effects of aneuploidy on homologous recombination, transcription, and tumor suppression. After completing his PhD, Dr. Sheltzer established his own research group as an Independent Fellow at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The Sheltzer Lab's research is dedicated to understanding the genomic causes of cancer progression and therapeutic vulnerabilities. In 2021, Dr. Sheltzer joined the faculty of the Yale School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor.
