Human Genetics of Cancer and Iron
The IMPPC is a recently founded institute combining basic and applied cancer
We are looking for a highly motivated person who is interested in joining a young and dynamic laboratory that seeks to apply state-of-the-art technology in biology and genetics (including personalized genome sequencing). The main research interests of the lab are to explore molecular links between cancer and iron metabolism, to prevent cancer in iron-overload patients by earlier genetic diagnosis and to identify new genes involved in human iron-related diseases.
Patient samples are provided by established partnerships with clinical groups from several Hospitals. We rely on cell culture and a wide variety of biochemical/genetic techniques.
