Información complementaria de la oferta:
The candidate will have the opportunity to initiate and conduct research within the Hereditary Cancer Program of the Institut Català d'Oncologia, IDIBELL [Program Director: Gabriel Capellá; Principal Investigators: Gabriel Capellá, Conxi Lázaro, Marta Pineda and Laura Valle].
The overarching goal of our group is to gain insight into the molecular basis of hereditary cancer, to personalize risk assessment to patients and relatives, as well as to individualize management regarding follow-up, treatment and prophylactic measures. Our multidisciplinary group includes basic researchers, clinicians, genetic counselors in familial cancer and laboratory technicians, facilitating fully comprehensive studies, data analysis, access to the patients and samples, and the translation of the obtained results to the clinics and genetic counseling.
Successful candidates will join a dynamic, young and well equipped research group with strong interactions and multidisciplinary research. The group offers a stimulating research atmosphere and an environment in which collaboration and exchange of ideas and techniques is actively encouraged with a strong commitment to research which provides a lively and stimulating environment for young talents.
In the last years we have contributed in a highly relevant manner to the identification of novel hereditary cancer genes, the molecular and clinical characterization of new familial cancer syndromes and to the molecular characterization of tumors. Moreover, our group has pioneered the implementation of multi-gene panels in the routine genetic diagnostics of hereditary cancer.
Our group is currently funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, Carlos III National Health Institute, Scientific Foundation Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer (stable groups) and CIBER Cancer.
