Job DescriptionPostdoctoral research fellow to carry out studies in translational breast cancer research. The laboratory focuses on identifying alterations with functional significance to the development and progression of breast cancer and translating results using transgenic mouse models as well as patient derived xenograft models. Specific pathways that examine the alteration of the G1/S transition and upregulation of IL-6 will be interrogated in these mouse model systems. Technologies include transgenic mouse modeling, single cell RNA sequencing, immune profiling and in vivo drug studies.
In addition to wet bench and mouse model experiments, the post-doc will also have the opportunity to work with clinical investigators in the breast medical oncology and breast surgical oncology departments to learn how best to translate their pre-clinical work into clinical trials.
