Jan Dumanski is a professor of experimental pathology at the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, Uppsala University, in Sweden. Jan Dumanski was born 1960 in Krakow (Cracow, Poland) and studied medicine at the Medical Academy of Krakow, 1979-1984. In 1985 he entered Ph.D. program at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm and graduated in 1990 from the Department of Clinical Genetics and Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Stockholm branch. In 1994 received associate professorship at Karolinska Institutet in medical molecular genetics and moved to Uppsala University in February 2000. Between May 2006 and May 2008, he was active as Professor of Genetics at University of Alabama at Birmingham, Department of Genetics and Director of Howell and Elizabeth Heflin Center for Human Genetics.
Jan Dumanski has published papers in human and mouse genetics as well as in cancer research. He has since 1986 been participating in characterization of human chromosome 22, which led to cloning of several disease-causing genes. His is currently involved in projects related to genetic mechanisms behind metastasis of cancer and cancer predisposition. He is also studying genetic and epigenetic differences between monozygotic twins as new model towards characterization of disease biomarkers.
