Dr. Roberts received his PhD in 1976 from Harvard University, where he also completed a postdoctoral fellowship. In 1981, he joined the DFCI faculty. Dr. Roberts has played a seminal role in discovering the conceptual fabric of signaling downstream from tyrosine kinases.  His lab and that of Lewis Cantley, working together, pioneered research on PI3 kinase.  He has extended his work to stimulate the discovery of clinically useful inhibitors of oncogenic kinases.
