Dr Sergio Granados-Principal's group is searching for a highly-motivated, enthusiastic and independent postdoc researcher to apply for a “Sara Borrell” Grant. We are a young and competitive research group from the Hospital Complex of Jaen (Spain); our laboratory is integrated in the Center for Genomics and Oncological Research (GENYO) in Granada (Spain), where the candidate will develop the project. GENYO is a leading center of excellence in oncology and genomic research that integrates a multidisciplinary environment for innovative young and stablished researchers. This center is supported by excellent core services built with the latest technology, what allows the development of new and competitive research areas. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a very aggressive form of cancer with an elevated prevalence of recurrence, metastases and mortality after chemotherapy, events that are triggered by cancer stem cells (CSCs). There is lack of effective therapies against metastatic TNBC to target both the chemotherapy-sensitive tumor cells and the chemotherapy-resistant CSCs. We aim at discovering novel CSCs-related genes and/or pathways involved in drug resistance, tumor metastasis and relapse in order to further develop new therapeutic approaches to be translated into the clinical practice.
