A Postdoctoral position for an extremely motivated researcher to study the role of molecular and metabolic aspects of cell programmed necrosis (necroptosis) in Ovarian Cancer Stem cells is available at Hormel Cancer Research Institute, University of Minnesota in Austin, MN in the Laboratory of Dr. Ilana Chefetz. Our lab aims to expand our understanding of necroptosis and energy metabolism and provide critical pre-clinical studies for a potential novel Cancer Stem cells targeted therapeutics to prevent recurrent ovarian cancer.
