Research summary

Dr. Banerji’s training involved the use of next-generation sequencing technology to identify structural abnormalities, or mutations in the DNA of cancer cells, and understanding the consequences of these mutations to cancer cell growth using high-throughput functional screens. He has applied these novel technologies to a variety of malignancies including breast cancer, lung cancer and sarcoma.


Dr. Shantanu Banerji is an associate professor of internal medicine at the University of Manitoba.

Dr. Banerji completed his clinical training in internal medicine and medical oncology at the University of Manitoba and CancerCare Manitoba. He then pursued a four-year research fellowship in cancer genomics at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute under the mentorship of Dr. Matthew Meyerson.
