Scholarship Description: As part of the “CAFFEIN” Marie Curie Initial Researcher Training network, we are offering a PhD position for the cells using genetically modified mice. Rho GTPases are major regulators of the cytoskeleton, thus affecting migration, adhesion, cell-cell contacts, endocytosis and gene expression. Rho GTPases are expected to play a crucial role in the generation and tumor-promoting role of cancer associated fibroblasts. Using fibroblast-specific deletion of Rho GTPases in mice and the application of tumor models, we want to address this question directly.
Duration of award(s): not known
Duration of Awards: Position is offered for 3 years.
