Research Bio

Dr. Rothberg's research focuses on deciphering the role of human genetic variation in the development of disease. Particular areas of focus include cancer and neurodegeneration. Current areas of investigation include studies on the molecular genetics of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (Batten disease) in collaboration with the Batten Disease Clinical and Research Center, the early prediction of drug resistance in chronic myeloid leukemia, and the role of germline variation in the prognosis of prostate cancer.
