Dr. David Berman

2012 April 02

Welcome to new Faculty member David Berman (Principal Investigator, and Associate Professor of Pathology, Urology, and Oncology).

From his lab website: He gave up his role as a New York City bicycle maven to pursue M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at U.T. Southwestern where he cloned the cDNA for the enzyme 5-alpha reductase and elucidated its role in prostate development. He then performed anatomic pathology and subspecialty training in urologic pathology at Johns Hopkins, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in Molecular Biology and Genetics.

His research focuses on embryonic signaling pathways in prostate and bladder cancer. He performs diagnostic surgical pathology one or two days a week and devotes the rest of his professional efforts to fundamental research.

David's hobbies include playing barista for his wife Peggy and his friends and co-workers, wave-jumping with his two daughters, and masters' swimming.
