Genetic Epidemiology and Genomics of Pancreatic CancerPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2017-Feb-04
The main focus of the laboratory is on inherited predisposition to pancreatic cancer and functional characterization of common and rare risk variants identified by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and sequence-based (Exome/ES, Whole Genome/WGS and transcriptome/TWAS) approaches. We lead a large GWAS of pancreatic cancer conducted within the NCI Cohort Consortium (PanScan) in collaboration with multiple investigators around the world. This opening is for a highly motivated individual interested in genetic and genomic research using large scale GWAS and next generation sequence data (ES/WGS) for gene mapping approaches, as well as transcriptome (RNA-Seq, eQTL) and epigenome (Chip-Seq, DNAseHS-Seq etc) datasets for genomic analyses aimed at understanding the functional consequences of inherited pancreatic cancer risk alleles.
