Intravital Microscopy of Liver CancerPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Mar-05
A postdoctoral fellowship position is available in the laboratory of Natalie Porat-Shliom Ph.D, within the Center for Cancer Research (CCR) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, Maryland. Candidates are sought to join a basic and translational research program focused on hepatocytes cell biology and liver cancer. Our lab is part of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), which is embedded in the vibrant research community of the NIH’s main campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
Our major goal is to identify alterations in cellular metabolism pathways in cancer cells. For this, we apply intravital microscopy, the study of cellular processes in live, anesthetized rodents (Porat-Shliom et al. 2019, Porat-Shliom et al 2016) with a particular focus on the liver. Specifically, we combine gene delivery, mouse genetics and light microscopy techniques to investigate tumor metabolism and the interactions between the tumor cells with the microenvironment. A benefit of this position is the opportunity to learn state-of-the-art light microscopy imaging techniques.
