    Mechanisms of ovarian cancer dissemination & response to therapy

    Immediate opening for a post-doctoral fellow, to investigate novel molecular mechanisms controlling the behavior of metastatic ovarian cancer cells, and their responsiveness to therapy. The project can exploit a growing biobank of primary metastatic cells derived from high grade serous ovarian cancer patients. Successful applicants will be in charge of competitive research goals, applying a range of experimental approaches, from pharmacogenomic/transcriptomic analyses to experimental validation of molecular targets in cellular and preclinical models. Consolidated prior expertise in molecular/cellular biology applications, preferably in cancer research, is required. Candidates will be further prioritized based on track publication record and previous experience with mouse models. Eligible candidates are encouraged to submit a brief CV with research interests and potential referees. Proponent webpage: docenti.unicatt.it/ppd2/en/docenti/59412/luca-tamagnone/profilo .
