Post Doc Fellow
Company: The Translational Genomics Research Institute
Posted on: August 7, 2022
The Pancreatic Cancer Research Laboratory at TGen currently has a
postdoctoral fellowship position available. Our lab aims to develop
novel targeted therapies for patients with advanced pancreatic
cancer. We employ genomic and biochemical approaches to identify
alterations responsible for driving the progression and/or drug
resistance of pancreatic cancer. Promising alterations are further
validated for drug targeting and candidate therapies are then
developed and tested in cell line, organoids, and animal models. By
closely working with clinicians at TGen's Clinical Services, we
seek to rapidly translate laboratory findings to the clinic.
Promising therapies are promptly evaluated in pilot clinical
trials. Conversely, hypotheses generated by clinicians based on
clinical observations are readily tested in the laboratory.
Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) is a Phoenix,
Arizona-based non-profit organization dedicated to conducting
groundbreaking research with life changing results. TGen is focused
on helping patients with neurological disorders, cancer, and
diabetes, through cutting edge translational research (the process
of rapidly moving research towards patient benefit). TGen
physicians and scientists work to unravel the genetic components of
both common and rare complex diseases in adults and children.
Working with collaborators in the scientific and medical
communities literally worldwide, TGen makes a substantial
contribution to help our patients through efficiency and
effectiveness of the translational process. TGen is allied with
City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and cancer and
diabetes treatment center. This precision medicine alliance enables
both institutes to complement each other in research and patient
care, with City of Hope providing a significant clinical setting to
advance scientific discoveries made by TGen. For more information,
