Bio


Dr. Marshall Horwitz is an internist and clinical medical geneticist whose research interests relate to genetic factors predisposing to hematopoietic malignancy and the clonal evolution of cancer. The major focus of his research centers on defining the genetic origins of cancers of the blood and using that as a paradigm for further understanding development. His laboratory employs genetic mapping and sequencing strategies to identify genes responsible for familial predisposition to leukemia, lymphoma, and bone marrow failure syndromes. In related work, Dr. Horwitz's laboratory has developed a new approach for mapping cell fate during development by inferring the order in which mutations accumulate in somatic tissues.
