We have been recently awarded a CaixaResearch Grant from Fundació laCaixa, in collaboration with the group of Paco Real (CNIO, Madrid), to study splicing regulatory circuits relevant for bladder and pancreatic cancer, which are altered by mutation of the RNA binding protein RBM10.
We are seeking a motivated postdoc to carry out an interdisciplinary, highly collaborative project aimed at identifying splicing alterations in bladder and pancreatic cancer that contribute to tumour progression and use this knowledge to design novel therapeutic approaches.
About the lab
The group of Juan Valcárcel studies alternative splicing and its impact on cancer progression, aiming to use this knowledge for the design of novel therapeutic approaches in oncology. We combine high-throughout, functional genomics, cell biology, biochemistry and structural biology to understand molecular mechanisms of splice site selection and their alterations in cancer cells. We are contributing to the development of novel cancer therapies based upon the use of splicing-modifying antisense oligonucleotides and small molecule modulators of the spliceosome.
