卢森堡卫生研究所免疫-肿瘤学和癌症信号博士后职位

Post-Doctoral Researcher in Immuno-Oncology and Cancer Signaling - AC0421

Luxembourg Institute of Health

Description

20/04/2021 17:41:28BAckground and Research Environment

The Luxembourg Institute of Health is offering a postdoctoral position within the Department of Infection and Immunity (group of Immuno-Pharmacology and Interactomics) in the area of cancer cell signalling to carry out a multidisciplinary research project on the involvement of chemokine receptors in glioblastoma.

Tumour growth and dissemination are among the most important aspects in cancer biology. Chemokines are a superfamily of chemo-attractant cytokines playing critical roles in these processes. The biological effects of chemokines are mediated through seven-transmembrane receptors coupled to G proteins (GPCRs). Recently, different chemokine receptors and chemokines, notably atypical chemokine receptors (ACKRs) have been proposed to play a crucial role in glioblastoma, an aggressive malignant brain tumour.

The group of Immuno-Pharmacology and Interactomics investigates the fundamental and clinical implications of chemokine receptors in human biology and immuno-oncology-related processes and inflammatory diseases. TheDepartment of Infection and Immunity located at the House of BioHealth is a basic clinical-translational research entity aiming at understanding the complex mechanisms of infectious and inflammatory processes to enable new ways to diagnose, prevent and cure human diseases. Building on a highly interdisciplinary research environment, its strategy bridges experimental discovery and validation with clinical application and technology development to address major unsolved medical needs in the areas of immune-mediated inflammation, cancer and infectious diseases. The researchers of DII have access to state-of-the-art core facilities including cell culture labs, SPF animal house, confocal microscopy, interactomics, proteomics, genomics, flow cytometry (CyTOF, imaging flow cytometry,...), in vivo imaging, BSL2 and BSL3 facilities.

This project will investigate chemokine receptor functions, signalling and modulation in the context of glioblastoma biology. The research efforts will be directed toward four convergent approaches:

Defining the expression profiles of different receptors on tissues and cells derived from gliobastoma patients.

Engineering CRISPR-edited cell lines to investigate specific chemokine signalling pathways.

Investigating the signalling properties of chemokines towards receptors in vitro and in vivo.

4. Examining the impact of receptor modulation on cell proliferation, migration and survival in vitro and PDOX mouse models.
