Martin Breuss, PhD

Breuss Selected as CU SOM 2024 Translational Research Scholar

University of Colorado School of Medicine’s Program to Advance Physician Scientists and Translational Research has selected five Translational Research Scholars for 2024. The program aims to foster translational research among early career faculty who are within the first four years of their assistant professor appointment. Each scholar receives up to $300,000 over four years to support their research. Congratulations to Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Section of Genetics and Metabolism and 2022 Boettcher Investigator Martin Breuss, PhD. 

Prior to starting his independent laboratory in 2021, Breuss received his PhD in molecular biology from the University of Vienna, Institute of Molecular Pathology, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, San Diego. His laboratory’s research is focused on the origin, impact and utility of genomic mosaicism – the phenomenon where some but not all cells within a tissue carry a unique genetic mutation. Their work includes the development of experimental and analytical methods for its detection and their implementation to understand development, homeostasis and disease. For the TRSP-funded project, Breuss and his team will employ genomic mosaicism detection frameworks to understand the clonality of the hematopoietic system and its correlation with aging and disease—leveraging the data resources available through the Colorado Center of Precision Medicine (CCPM).
