Ph.D., Institute Scientist and Senior Director of the Genomics Platform, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
Stacey Gabriel is senior director of the Genomics Platform at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and an institute scientist at the Broad. Under Gabriel’s guidance, the Genomics Platform operates as one of the largest sequencing centers in the world and continually explores, validates, optimizes, and implements new technologies, methods, and analysis tools to meet the needs of the Broad community. Gabriel and the members of her team are committed to pushing the boundaries of the genomic frontier through the application of operational excellence, advanced process design, data analysis and visualization, and technology development capabilities. In addition to her activities with the Genomics Platform, Gabriel’s research interests lie in using genomic techniques to understand the genetic basis of common diseases. Since joining the Whitehead Institute/MIT Center for Genome Research in 1998, her work has provided foundational research for the International HapMap Project and she has represented Broad in many large national projects. She has served on the steering committee for the 1000 Genomes Project, as well as co-chairing the project’s production group; serving on the steering committee for The Cancer Genome Atlas; serving as principal investigator on the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s Exome Sequencing Project and TOPMed program; and co-principal investigator (with Eric Lander) of the National Human Genome Research Institute’s large-scale sequencing center at the Broad Institute. Gabriel received her B.S. in molecular biology from Carnegie Mellon University and Ph.D. in human genetics from Case Western Reserve University.
