Candidates should be highly motivated, have a good background in Life Sciences, Chemistry, Physics and/or Computer Science, with STRONG INTEREST (experience is not required) in cancer. Projects in the lab use a variety of techniques including genetic screens, cell biology, molecular biology and bioinformatics.

 

Current ongoing projects include:

  • Identification of alternatively expressed transcripts as targets in Gastric cancer.

  • Identification and characterisation of genes associated with increased breast cancer risk.

  • Development of CRISPR based approaches for systematic studies of circular RNA function.

  • Mechanisms and strategies for targeting of β-catenin driven colon cancers.

  • PROTACs as a new molecule type for development of personalised cancer therapies.
