- the role of epigenetics in genome stability and integrity;
- the role of modified RNAs and epi-transcriptomics in cancer;
- the relationship between immune oncology and epigenetics;
- the relationship between metabolic pathways and epigenetic control.
Successful applicants will join a highly interactive institution that is committed to bridging basic discovery to clinical application through collaboration.
