University of Würzburg Postdoctoral position

University of Würzburg Postdoctoral position

A postdoctoral position is available within the CRU216
„Characterization of the Oncogenic Signaling Network in Multiple Myeloma:
Development of Targeted Therapies“ (supported by the DFG)

Institute: Institute for Virology and Immunobiology,
Department of Immunology (chair: Prof. Dr. T. Hünig)
Location: Würzburg, Bavaria, Germany
Duration: 3 years (starting July 1st, 2009)

Summary of the project: Despite the fact that CD28 is predominantly expressed on aggressive variants of MM, little is known about the signaling network of CD28 in these cells. In the current project, we will examine the influence of CD28 signals on human MM cell lines and primary MM samples. Additionally, in a transgenic mouse
model closely recapitulating features of human MM, we will study the
role of CD28 in proliferation, differentiation and homing.
