Additional Information

The Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC) is a non-profit research institute based in Barcelona and dedicated to advancing our understanding about leukaemia and related disorders, in partnership with the University of Barcelona and University Autònoma of Barcelona. The IJC has laboratories in three clinical campuses: i) Clinic Hospital, ii) Sant Pau Hospital and iii) Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital. IJC serves as a collaborative hub for basic investigators and physicians to work together on fundamental biological and clinical aspects of leukaemia. The IJC offers an excellent work environment built around a multi-disciplinary fusion of ideas and state-of-the-art facilities.

 

Research Description

The Cancer Heterogeneity and Hierarchies Group led by Dr Veronica Rodilla, is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher

We are a newly-created group passionate for cellular hierarchies and cancer heterogeneity. Our laboratory studies the key signals governing stem cell and cell fate specification during malignant progression and the mechanisms by which different signaling pathways controls cell plasticity in both normal and pathological contexts. Concretely, we combine the use of murine transgenic models, human Patient-derived xenografts and 3D-organotypic cultures to unravel cellular hierarchies within tumors for better understanding cancer heterogeneity.

Our ultimate mission is contributing to improve the treatment of choice of cancer patients by searching for novel therapeutic strategies.

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.
