Brody received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and his thesis specialized in studying the molecular aspects of cancer and cancer genetics. He patented, along with Dr. Scott Kern, novel buffers for DNA identification that have changed the format of this molecular biology technique that is used to detect DNA. He was elected chair of the Cancer Research Program, Department of Defense Council, and he serves on many international study sections, including being the chair of the tumor biology and genomics study section for the American Cancer Society and NCI study section panels. Additionally, he was an American Cancer Society Research Scholar, and he is NIH funded and the winner of the 2010 American Association of Cancer Research’s Pancreatic Cancer Career Development Award.
