Scholarship Open for International Students: No
Scholarship Description: The groups of Antoni Hurtado (NCMM, UIO) and the group of Anne-Lise Børresen/Kristine Kleivi Sahlberg (Department of Genetics, Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo University Hospital) are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow for a two-year period. Both laboratories study the mechanism of resistance to breast cancer treatments. The offered project aims to investigate the deregulated signaling pathways in HER2+ cancers in relation to treatment response and investigate the molecular interactions of ER and HER2 pathways. Using in silico studies and in combination with state of the art technologies in prospective cell and clinical samples this project plan to achieve the following objectives: 1) Integrated genomic analysis to study the signaling pathways in HER2+ cancers in relation to drug response and 2) Study of the molecular interaction between ER and HER-2 pathways.
