Darlene Gabeau, M.D., Ph.D., DABR® joined the adjunct faculty in 2011. She is board certified in Radiation Oncology by the American Board of Radiology. She earned her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences from Wellesley College and was elected to Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society in 1994. At Yale University, she earned a Ph.D. in Neurobiology investigating the role of trophic factors in neuronal differentiation of olfactory bulb granule cells. She also earned a medical doctorate at Yale, for which she was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society in 2004. Dr. Gabeau completed internship in Internal Medicine at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA. Her residency training was performed at the Harvard Radiation Oncology Program in Boston, MA. Dr. Gabeau also served as a postdoctoral research fellow in Molecular Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital where she used array comparative genomic hybridization to identify clinically predictive gene alterations in brain tumors.
