Roel Verhaak, PhD, is a Professor and Associate Director of the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, Connecticut. The Verhaak lab studies glioma using genomic characterization and computational analyses, work that has helped redefine the way glioma in adult patients is classified. More recent efforts are focused on tumor evolution, which the lab is investigating using longitudinal tumor sequencing, single-cell sequencing, and via comparative oncology approaches.

Roel Verhaak is a recipient of the AAAS Wachtel Award, the Agilent Early Career Professor Award, and the Peter Steck Memorial Award. He is a co-founder of Boundless Bio, a biotech company developing therapies against cancers containing extrachromosomal DNA amplifications.
