Dr. Bharati Bapat is a molecular geneticist and she runs a genetic program.

Current Position: Staff Scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital, Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, Familial Gastrointestinal Cancer Registry (FGICR).

Dr. Bapat has authored over 120 peer-reviewed publications. Her research program is focused on translational genomics and epigenomics, specifically the discovery of cancer biomarkers, and to understand their role in cancer development. In the research lab, Dr. Bapat focuses on uncovering the causes of colorectal, bladder and prostate cancer by taking an epigenetic approach.

Recently, Dr. Bapat’s team conducted a large study of colon cancer patients from six international registries, in which patients had one of two distinct genetic types of tumours. Results suggest a complex interplay between genetic mutations and environmental factors. Dr. Bapat’s research also focuses on the development of non-invasive diagnostic tests for cancers.
