Postdoctoral Positions Available in Cancer and Glioma Stem Cell Biology Laboratory at the Meyer Cancer Center, Weill Cornell College of Medicine

The Glioma Stem Cell Biology Laboratory at the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell College of Medicine (formerly Molecular Neuro-Oncology Laboratory of the Neuro-Oncology Branch of the NIH) is a rapidly growing program/laboratory benefitting from exceptional resources, scientific freedom and extraordinary local environment of world-renowned cancer biologists and neuroscientists. Our largest and most rapidly growing area of focus is in the area of tumor stem cell biology and glioma-normal host cell (e.g. astrocytes, neurons) interactions through calcium transits, glutamate, serotonin and other neurotransmitters signaling as studies through the continued development and refinement of a novel “tumor on a chip” technology we have developed using pluripotent cell-derived human cerebral organoids.

A few of our publications that represent the kind of research we do include: Cancer Cell. 9: 287-300, 2006; Cancer Research. 66(19): 9428-36, 2006; Cancer Cell. 9(5):391-403, 2006;  Cancer Res. 6(1):21-30, 2008; Cancer Cell 13(1):69-80, 2008; Cell Stem Cell.  4(5): 440-52, 2009.; Cancer Research, 2009; 69(4): 1596-1603, 2009; Cancer Cell.15(4): 247-9, 2009; Cell Stem Cell 4(6): 466-7, 2009; Bioinformatics. 26:1792-3, 2010; Cancer Cell. 18:543-5, 2010;, Cancer Cell 20:695-7, 2011; J. Natl. Cancer Instit. 103:1162-78, 2011; Cancer Cell 21; 710, 2012; Cell Reports 6:313, 2014; Cancer Inform. 2014 Oct 15;13(Suppl 3):33-44. doi: 10.4137; Pharmacogenomics J. 2014 Dec 2. doi: 10.1038/tpj.2014.61; Int J Cancer. 2017 Jul 14. doi: 10.1002/ijc.30887; Sci Rep. 2017 Mar 3;7:43605. doi: 10.1038/srep4360   

The laboratory allows outstanding exposure to and potential involvement in all aspects of translational science while exploring basic mechanistic studies of tumorigenesis using a combination of molecular and computational biology approaches.
