Functional Genomics FellowshipPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Feb-04
One postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Paul Liu, National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH, in Bethesda, MD (https://www.genome.gov/10000358/liu--group/).
Lab research interests: Using genetic and genomic approaches, our lab investigates the molecular mechanisms of leukemia and hematopoiesis. Our long-term goal is to translate our findings to better diagnosis and treatment of leukemia and other blood diseases. Most of our studies have been focused on two transcription factors, RUNX1 and CBFb, which play major roles in leukemia pathogenesis. These two proteins are also key regulators of hematopoiesis at multiple stages. Understanding their roles during hematopoiesis will enhance our understanding of their involvement in leukemogenesis, as well as their roles in other hematologic diseases such as the familial platelet disorder, in which RUNX1 is mutated.
