Bio: Dr. Laura Elnitski received her Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University in the area of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She later carried out her post-doctoral research at The Pennsylvania State University, in the area of Computational Biology. Currently she serves as a Tenured Principal Investigator at the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA. She has many honors and awards, and serves on many scientific review committees. Her research involves the study of tumor epigenomes, with a focus on computational methods to identify tumor subclasses by their DNA methylation landscapes. Her research accomplishments include the identification of the first candidate pan-cancer biomarker for use in cancer diagnostics, using a blood-based, or liquid biopsy.
