The Novina lab combines basic science and advanced technologies to accelerate the translation of biological discoveries into novel therapies. Areas of focus in the lab include the role of non-coding RNAs in oncogenesis, single cell analysis of bone marrow failure syndromes, epigenetic engineering to treat ovarian cancer, and innovative approaches to tumor immunotherapy. The Novina Lab is a highly-collaborative and entrepreneurial environment. We have many clinical, technological, computational, and disease modeling collaborators who provide us with insights that help guide our research.

The Novina Lab provides a robust training environment for graduate students, postdoctoral scientists and clinical fellows. We are members of multiple communities at Dana-Farber including the Department of Cancer Immunology and Virology, the Cancer Immunotherapy Working Group, and the Center for Cancer Functional Epigenomics; at Harvard Medical School including BBS, Immunology and Virology Graduate Programs, and The Harvard Biotechnology Incubator; and at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT including the Cancer Program, Cell Circuits and Epigenomics Program and the Broad Technology Labs.

The following pages expand upon our approach to research, collaboration, community and mentorship.
