This mentored position will empower the candidate to analyze complex conditional genetic mouse models of pediatric cancers for the purpose of developing novel molecular therapies. The primary goal for this fellowship is to understand the role of growth factors & kinases in the progression of the childhood muscle cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma. Employing molecular biology, biochemistry and multiscale imaging (whole animal to confocal microscopy), the candidate will have the opportunity to identify critical factors in tumor maintenance and tumor progression from which new therapies can be developed. Rapid translation to the clinic is the underlying goal. Candidates with experience in developmental biology or muscle biology are especially encouraged to apply.
