Marc Tischkowitz

University Reader, Cambridge University. Cambridge, UK.

Dr. Tischkowitz’s research group shared a laboratory with our team for six years at the Lady Davis Institute before he established himself in the department of Medical Genetics at Cambridge University. Our joint research efforts have largely focused on better defining the role of the Fanconi Anemia gene PALB2 as a breast cancer susceptibility gene, including the discovery and characterization of a Founder mutation in the Quebec population. He has been a driving force in the establishment of the PALB2 Interest Group, a research consortium that includes over 100 members who are clinicians, epidemiologist and researchers from around the world, all working on PALB2.
