Dr. Bernstein is a Professor of Oncological Sciences and Dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. She performed her thesis research in the laboratory of Dr. Gregory Hannon at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory with a PhD from Stony Brook University. Dr. Bernstein completed her postdoctoral studies with Dr. David Allis at The Rockefeller University.

She has made important scientific contributions to various areas of biology during her career, including understanding the mechanisms of RNA interference and chromatin regulation, and in her own laboratory, how the latter impacts on disease. Her laboratory studies epigenetic mechanisms underlying cellular reprogramming in development and cancer, with a focus on malignant melanoma and neuroblastoma. She has held continuous funding from the NCI for her research program, serves as a permanent member of the Cancer Genetics study section of the NIH, and participates in grant review committees for multiple foundations.
