AnatStemmer-Rachamimov, MD, is an associate professor of pathology and one of fourneuropathologists that diagnose approximately 700 in-house surgicalneuropathology cases, and 500 consultation cases per year.
Dr.Stemmer-Rachamimov's clinical practice and research has focused on the pathologyand molecular basis of lesions in hereditary brain tumor syndromes, inparticular, the neurofibromatoses (NF1, NF2, schwannomatosis). She haspublished more than 100 original articles, as well as numerous reviews and bookchapters. Her laboratory is interested in characterizing mouse models ofneurofibromatoses and molecular classification of NF-associated lesions(malformative and neoplastic).
Inaddition, she is the co-director of the Neuro Oncology Tissue Repository andoversees collection and banking and distribution of specimens of neurooncology. supporting a large number of research projects.
Dr. Stemmer-Rachamimov is also the director of theDFHCC Special Histology Core in MGH. The core provides histology andimmunohistochemical services in support of large number of researchers withinand outside of the partners system.
Our lab's research focuses on identifying the underlying molecular changes in the lesions and malformations associated with hereditary brain tumor syndromes (neurofibromatosis 1, neurofibromatosis 2, schwannomatosis and tuberous sclerosis), and the identification of activated pathways or events that lead to tumor progression. We are now moving from defining the molecular features and understanding the biology to more practical translational research of biomarkers and drug screens.
