Maria Maryanovich, PhD

Principal Investigator

Dr. Maria Maryanovich is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell Biology and a member of the Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, the Institute of Cancer Dormancy and Tumor Microenvironment, and the Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center. After graduating from the Ort Braude College of Engineering with a degree in Biotechnology Engineering, she moved to the Weizmann Institute of Science, completing her Ph.D. in Life Sciences, where she focused on the mechanism of DNA damage response and mitochondria metabolism that mediate hematopoietic stem cell quiescence and function. For her postdoctoral training, Dr. Maryanovich joined the laboratory of Dr. Paul S. Frenette at Einstein, where she discovered the critical role of sympathetic nerves and adrenergic signaling within the bone marrow in regulating the hematopoietic niche during aging. 

Maria's goal for the lab is to uncover cellular and molecular regulators of HSC maintenance within the bone marrow niche in both normal hematopoiesis and in the context of aging and myeloid leukemias. Dr. Maryanovich is also dedicated to training the next generation of scientists and providing a supportive lab environment for emerging scientists to thrive.
