Liver Disease Lab - Dr. Malu Martínez Chantar

Liver Cancer affects one million of new patients each year and is directly connected with obesity. HCC is the fifth deadliest cancer owning to its vast heterogeneity and late detection at advanced stages. These upsetting facts prompted us to launch an exciting project, whose challenging idea was that "not everything that regulates tumor development and responses to anti-cancerous treatments is written in the genes". In this field, Liver Disease Lab leading by Malu Martinez-Chantar is looking for a motivated experienced candidate that will proceed with a “forward approach," which will involve a comprehensive analysis of post-translational modifications (PTM) (NEDDylation and SUMOylation) in preneoplastic  lesions to define bona-fide markers of liver cancer; analysis of biomarkers/fluids and links to metabolism/genomics.

CIC bioGUNE (http://www.cicbiogune.es/) is a key research center within the national and international scientific landscape and has been recognized as “Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence” by Spanish government. CIC bioGUNE is an Endorsing Institution of the "European Charter for Researchers & Code of Conduct for Recruitment of Researchers", guaranteeing the best framework conditions to contribute to the professional/personal development of researchers.

Liver Disease lab is looking for highly-motivated experienced researcher of any nationality interested in applying for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowship call (H2020-MSCA-IF-2019).
