Master thesis in Translational Cancer Research
- Cancer Research, Molecular and Cell Biology, Precision Medicine
- Center for Physiology and Pharmacology, Institute of Pharmacology, Medical University of Vienna
We are looking for two highly motivated and curiosity-driven master students to join our lab for one year.
The students will apply cutting-edge tools (e.g. CRISPR, in vivo work with genetically engineered cancer models, transcriptomics, FACS, high-throughput automated live cell imaging and others) to explore targets for combination therapies in lung cancer and leukemia. The projects will involve gene/drug screens in culture and in vivo followed by the validation and mechanistic characterization of identified candidates.
