Autophagy and Cell Death in CancerPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2018-Mar-09
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute supports cutting edge research into the molecular mechanisms of cancer development and is one of the leading research institutes in Europe. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies, with special emphasis on imaging, metabolomics, and in vivo models.
The Tumour Cell Death group is a vibrant team which aims to understand how cell viability is controlled during tumour development and in response to cancer therapy. We focus on apoptosis and autophagy - two pathways that control cell viability - and we study both existing and novel factors controlling these pathways. We are interested in the basic molecular mechanisms of apoptosis and autophagy, coupled with the use of in vivo cancer models to understand the impact of these pathways on the establishment, maintenance and spread of cancer. Ultimately, our studies aim to provide insights to both improve existing clinical regimens and to identify novels targets for therapeutic intervention.
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute is committed to increase the number of female scientists at this level and encourages female applicants to apply.
