After graduating with a B.Sc. from the University of Puerto Rico, Maria joined the Broad Institute’s Biological Samples Platform in 2011. While in our lab, Maria has made contributions to a broad array of projects including discoveries of chemo-resistance in ovarian cancer and biomarker discovery for the KAT6A project. Maria is joining Merck as a Scientist in the Discovery Oncology Functional Genomics group under the direct supervision of a former Broadie, Elsa Krall. We look forward to hearing of the discoveries that Maria and her team will make in this very exciting new role!
