Post-Doctoral Position in Altering Tumor Microenvironment

Updated: about 15 hours ago
Location: Bethesda, MARYLAND

The Frank Laboratory in the Clinical Center and National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, NIH is accepting applications for a two-three-year research fellowship position for qualified Ph.D., M.D., or MD/Ph.D. candidates with background in the immunology and molecular biology of the tumor microenvironment in response to treatment with Therapeutic Ultrasound (TUS) including focused ultrasound (FUS) and low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) combined with various cell or immunomodulatory therapies. The research focuses on understanding the molecular effects of TUS in tissues and organ systems and combining Cellular Therapies (Stem Cells, Genetically Engineered Cells, T-cells) coupled with TUS approaches serving as an adjuvant to target and treat malignancy. We are exploring several experimental model systems as well as exploring the effects of drug-host interactions on cellular therapy and serving as proof of concept of Therapeutic US to facilitate innovative cell therapy strategies.
