Opportunities in the Stover Lab
We are actively seeking members to join our team. If you are interested, please contact us.


Daniel G. Stover, MD
– Principal Investigator

Dr. Stover is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and the James Cancer Hospital/Solove Research Institute and is a clinician at the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center. His research focuses on clinical computational approaches to understand and treat breast cancer. As a computational biologist and medical oncologist, he applies and develops computational algorithms to integrate genomic data with patient features and outcomes. By studying patient samples, he seeks to identify new mechanisms of drug resistance to standard agents as well as investigational agents such as immunotherapy. The ultimate goal of this work is to identify predictive markers for treatment response while identifying novel susceptibilities to overcome drug resistance. Dr. Stover actively collaborates on correlative studies from early phase clinical trials, including biomarker identification and testing, genomic/transcriptional analyses, and studies using patient-derived tissue. He is an Associated Scientist at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT and an active collaborator with the Nurses’ Health Study. Dr. Stover has published papers in Journal of Clinical Oncology, Cell, Nature, Nature Medicine, and Clinical Cancer Research, among others.

Dr. Stover was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio where he lives with his wife and two sons. Both of his parents and all four of his grandparents are alumni of The Ohio State University. Dr. Stover is a cum laude graduate (Molecular Biology) of Princeton University and received his M.D. from Vanderbilt University. Dr. Stover did his residency in internal medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and was selected to serve as the Hugh J. Morgan Chief Resident in Medicine. He completed his fellowship in Medical Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Cancer Center program and postdoctoral research in the lab of Joan Brugge, PhD at Harvard Medical School. He then joined the faculty of Harvard Medical School while caring for breast cancer patients at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital prior to moving to OSU.

 

Elizabeth Adams – Clinical Research Assistant

 

Elizabeth is a recent Ohio State graduate, where she studied psychology and received her Bachelor of Art degree. She is interested in pursuing medical school and hopes to continue to contribute to the advancement of clinical inquiry through research throughout her career.

Elizabeth is originally from New Jersey and enjoys exploring the city of Columbus. She is most likely to be found trying a new coffee shop or exploring a new hiking trail.

 

Sarah Asad, MPH – Research data analyst

Sarah graduated with her Masters of Public Health dual specializing in Epidemiology and Biomedical Informatics from The Ohio State University in Spring 2018. She has spent several years working on research projects centered around reproductive health, child health, and women’s health in general. She received a BS in Mathematics and a BS in Public Health from OSU in 2016. As an undergraduate, Sarah was a coxswain for OSU’s varsity rowing team. In her last season she was selected as a CRCA All-American Athlete. In her free time, Sarah enjoys playing with her puppy and lifting.

Sarah is excited to be a part of a research team in the Comprehensive Cancer Center. Through her work, she hopes to have a positive and tangible impact on the community.
