Additional Information

IJC is looking for a Laboratory Technician to join the Lymphoid neoplasms group, led by Dr. TomasNavarro. The research group focuses on the study of lymphomas that affect immunosuppressed patients, both in clinical and genetic aspects. We have made important contributions in this field and our current objective is to unveil genetic and epigenetic characteristics of lymphoid neoplasms that occur mainly in immunosuppressed patients. The purpose is to find markers for the more accurate management of these patients. Furthermore, we aim to implement a liquid biopsy as a tool for diagnosis and follow-up of aggressive lymphomas.

Who we are?

Our mission is to carry out research into the basic, epidemiological, preventive, clinical and translational aspects of leukaemia and other hematologic malignancies.

The vision of the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute is that research will identify new therapeutic targets and enable us to develop more precise and less aggressive treatments.  We aspire to understand the origin and development of leukaemia and other malignant haematological pathologies in order to be able to prevent them.  We will work for a future in which all leukaemias will be curable.
