Full Job Description
Seeking to incorporate to our Translational Molecular Pathology Immnunoprofiling Research Laboratory (TMP-IL ) a highly motivated and talented pathologist fellow who is interested in making a difference against cancer and improving patient outcomes. The Translational Molecular Pathology -Immunoprofiling lab (TMP-IL) translates immunopofiling data into research that is clinically applicable and can aid in the treatment and outcome of future cancer patients. The long-term goal of our laboratory is to elucidate the molecular mechanism in cancer pathogenesis and progression, identifying molecular markers related with tumor development, progression, and metastasis in solid tumors and hematological malignancies. Our laboratory has focused on molecular immune-profiling research on the tumor microenvironment of cancer by IHC, multiplex IF, RNAscope, and high plex technologies and pursuing prognostic and predictive molecular biomarkers for chemo and target and immune therapies.

Learning Objectives

  • To learn aspects of cancer research undertaken in a hospital/research institute.
  • To learn how to perform digital pathology analysis on IHC, multiplex IF, and RNAScope, etc.
  • To develop research projects using novel multiplex-based techniques (CODEX, GeoMxDSP, IMC, MIBI) utilizing

FFPE surgical specimens, core needle biopsies, and smears from different tumor types for biomarkers analysis of

complex research projects of TMP-IL.

  • To understand how studies were done in laboratories can have an impact on patient care in the future.
  • The trainee will learn how to perform basic statistical analysis on path data.
  • The trainee, along with the mentor, will present his/her data in lab meetings.
  • The trainee will participate in departmental education activities, in particular, those offered by ITERT

Eligibility Requirements

An individual holding a recent (within three years) Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., Sc.D., M.D., D.V.M.) in an appropriate field who is seeking a temporary appointment, under the supervision of a faculty mentor, involving full-time laboratory-based research or scholarship in preparation for an academic or research career as an independent investigator. This appointment is not part of a clinical training program; individuals holding an M.D. degree or equivalent are not permitted to engage in patient care activity.
