Postdoctoral position

Date Created: March 18, 2019 - 11:58am

The former Molecular Neuro-Oncology Laboratory of the Neuro-Oncology Branch of the NIH has relocated to the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell College of Medicine and as part of the new Weill Cornell Brain Tumor Center.  The laboratory (a 2017 recipient of the NIH Directors Pioneer Award) is a rapidly growing program/laboratory benefitting from exceptional resources, scientific freedom and extraordinary local environment of world-renowned cancer biologists. Our largest and most rapidly growing area of interests are focused in the neuroscience of embryonic stem cell-derived cerebral organoids interfaced with tumor stem cell biology with a particular emphasis on metabolism, tumor and cerebral organoids and mechanisms of stem cell differentiation.

A few of our publications that represent the kind of research we do include: Cancer Cell. 9: 287-300, 2006; Cancer Research. 66(19): 9428-36, 2006; Cancer Cell. 9(5):391-403, 2006;  Cancer Res. 6(1):21-30, 2008; Cancer Cell 13(1):69-80, 2008; Cell Stem Cell.  4(5): 440-52, 2009.; Cancer Research, 2009; 69(4): 1596-1603, 2009; Cancer Cell.15(4): 247-9, 2009; Cell Stem Cell 4(6): 466-7, 2009; Bioinformatics. 26:1792-3, 2010; Cancer Cell. 18:543-5, 2010; Nature Reviews Neurol 7:439-50, 2011; PLoS One 6:e14681, 2011, Cancer Cell 20:695-7, 2011; J. Natl. Cancer Instit. 103:1162-78, 2011; Cancer Cell 21; 710, 2012; PLOS One 7:e51407, 2012, Cell Reports 6:313, 2014; PLoS One. 2014 Nov 3;9(11):e111783. doi: 10.1371; Cancer Inform. 2014 Oct 15;13(Suppl 3):33-44. doi: 10.4137; Pharmacogenomics J. 2014 Dec 2. doi: 10.1038/tpj.2014.61.   

 

The laboratory allows outstanding exposure to and potential involvement in all aspects of translational science while exploring basic mechanistic studies of tumorigenesis using a combination of molecular and computational biology approaches.
