 at Harvard Medical School

Towia A. Libermann, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Libermann is also the Director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Systems Center and of the Dana Farmer/Harvard Cancer Center Cancer Proteomics Core. Dr. Libermann is an internationally recognized translational investigator with a strong track record in precision medicine, biomarker discovery and translational studies of immunological diseases and cancer. Dr. Libermann’s lab is focused on applying multi-omics approaches to identify proteins or genes that may be exploited as biomarkers or targets for therapeutic intervention, starting with his seminal discovery of EGF receptor gene amplifications in glioblastomas. Dr. Libermann has been at the forefront of the next generation of proteomics and plays a central role in driving biomarker discovery to the next level. Libermann’s group uses the aptamer-based SomaScan proteomics platform, a modified aptamer-based high multiplex immunoassay platform, to discover and validate diagnostic, predictive, and prognostic biomarkers for various diseases using liquid biopsies such as extracellular vesicles and body fluids. Using the latest in machine learning, Libermann’s group has developed predictor models for applications in early detection, disease diagnosis, prediction of therapeutic response, monitoring of disease progression, and outcome prediction. Dr. Libermann received his PhD in Immunology in 1986 from the Weizmann Institute of Science and Technology, Rehovot and did a postdoctoral fellowship at the Whitehead Institute, Cambridge.
