Joseph D. Mancias, MD, PhD
Joe graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry from Princeton University in 2000 where he worked in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Hecht on protein folding. As part of the Tri-Institutional Weill Cornell/Rockefeller/Sloan-Kettering M.D.-Ph.D. Program, he earned a Ph.D. degree from the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences in 2007 and his M.D. from Weill Cornell Medical College in 2008. His graduate work in the laboratory of Jonathan Goldberg at the Sloan-Kettering Institute identified molecular mechanisms of cargo export from the endoplasmic reticulum using x-ray crystallography. His internship in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital was followed by a residency in Radiation Oncology in the combined Harvard Radiation Oncology Program completed in 2013. His postdoctoral research in the laboratories of Dr. Wade Harper in the Department of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School and Dr. Alec Kimmelman in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute focused on the role of autophagy in pancreatic cancer biology. From 2013-2016, Joe maintained a focused clinical practice in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center as an Instructor in Radiation Oncology treating patients seen in the BIDMC Pancreatic Cancer Center. Joe joined the Department of Radiation Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in 2016.
