The Translational Research in Hepatic Oncology laboratory in Barcelona is seeking a motivated individual for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
The main goal of the laboratory is to unravel the molecular determinants of liver cancer, identify novel treatments for HCC patients and discover predictors of response to molecular and immune therapies. The Laboratory leads an International Consortium devoted to liver cancer research and have produced important contributions in the field during the last years. The research is focused on the generation and analysis of high-throughput genomic data and state-of-the-art disease models.
Current areas of interest include the identification of mechanisms driving immune infiltration in HCC, biomarkers of response to treatments (including immune checkpoint inhibitors and combinations), and the development of mouse models capable of recapitulating specific HCC features for testing the efficacy of different therapies and assessing drug mechanisms of action. The Laboratory efforts are supported by several national and international grants.
