|Description of the research project/area of research
The research focus of the Jan-Åke Gustafsson group is nuclear receptors in health and disease. This project concerns the investigation of the effect of estrogen receptor beta on expression of components of intracellular signaling pathways and their activity, this in relation to development of endocrine resistance in breast cancer cells.
Tasks include planning and performing experiments related to the described project, teamwork with other researchers in the team and supervising of project students.
The lab is located at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Karolinska Institutet, (http://ki.se/ki/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=229&l=en) which provides an excellent research infrastructure.
The group is also part of the Center for Biosciences (http://ki.se/ki/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=19502&l=en) and has an axis to the Center for Nuclear Receptors and Cell Signaling in Houston (http://cnrcs.uh.edu/).
