Job Details

Join the forefront of groundbreaking research at the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope , where we're changing lives and making a real difference in the fight against cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening illnesses. Our dedicated and compassionate faculty and staff are driven by a common mission: Contribute to innovative approaches in predicting, preventing, and curing diseases, shaping the future of medicine through cutting-edge research.

Dr. Mingye Feng's laboratory at the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope is looking for a talented and highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow. Dr. Feng is an awardee of the V Scholar Award from the V Foundation for Cancer Research, the Damon Runyon - Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, the K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award from NIH, and NIH R01 grants. His laboratory employs cutting-edge techniques to understand mechanisms of macrophages in cancer immunosurveillance, identify immune checkpoints and ligands on various hematopoietic malignant and solider tumor cells with high-throughput screening and protein engineering approaches developed in the lab, and develop novel cancer immunotherapies targeting metastatic cancer cells. Cancer immunotherapy is one of the most important breakthroughs in the development of cancer treatment approaches. As one of the largest populations of immune cells in human body and the major components of primary tumors and the metastatic sites, macrophages are key effectors mediating tumor immunosurveillance and thus macrophage-based cancer immunotherapy is one of the most promising fields in cancer immunology and the next generation of cancer immunotherapy.
