Teresa Davoli

Assistant Professor
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology

Postdoc: Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA
PhD: The Rockefeller University, New York, NY


Teresa obtained her Ph.D. in 2013 from The Rockefeller University working with Dr. Titia de Lange to study how telomere dysfunction promotes aneuploidy during tumorigenesis. During her postdoctoral training, she worked with Dr. Stephen Elledge using genomics approaches to understand the consequences of cancer aneuploidy for tumor formation and for therapy response in cancer patients. In May 2018, Teresa started her lab at the Institute for Systems Genetics at NYU School of Medicine in New York. Her lab uses functional genetics and computational approaches to study the causes and consequences of genomic instability in cancer. Teresa received the Weintraub Graduate Student award in 2013 and was a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Scholar. In addition, she was a V Foundation Scholar and was also awarded the Melanoma Research Alliance Young Investigator Award and the Breast Cancer Alliance Young Investigator Award.
