Specific projects include characterization of molecular mechanisms of drug resistance, identification and validation of novel oncogenic targets and targeted therapies, and devising research technologies and platforms to guide the development of novel combination treatments. The lab nurtures many collaborative efforts with other academic and commercial institutions, with the goal of bringing new discoveries to the clinic quickly and/or to publish in high-tier journals to aid in the advancement of the field.

The applicant should be a recent graduate or in the final year of his/her Ph.D. and/or M.D., Ph.D. program, have a strong background in cancer cell biology and molecular signaling, be well-versed in routine cell culture and standard molecular biology techniques.
