An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Assistant to work in the Cardiff Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) Research Group within the Division of Cancer and Genetics. This post offers the exciting opportunity to work with our unique, physiologically relevant, circulating model of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). The successful applicant will utilize this model, alongside other tissue culture and molecular biology techniques, to elucidate the mechanism of action of Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) and phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitors. This will allow us to characterize the effects of BTK and PI3K inhibition on CLL cell migration and provide a rationale for their observed clinical effects. In addition, we will explore the potential of combining these agents with standard chemotherapy and other targeted inhibitors.
For informal enquiries, please contact Dr Elisabeth Walsby – [email protected]
