The laboratory of "Stem Cells, Leukemia, Aging and Metabolism" (SLAM Lab) at the University Clinic of Hematology & Central Hematology, Department for Bio-Medical Research (DBMR), Inselspital Bern, Switzerland is looking for highly motivated master students to contribute to the ongoing multidisciplinary research projects in leukemia.
The major focus of the lab is to explore leukemic stem cell dependencies and vulnerabilities using transgenic mouse models and primary patient samples from leukemia patients.
Your profile Highly motivated Master's student with a strong passion towards fundamental and translational cancer research.
Any relevant hands-on laboratory experience would be a plus but not obligatory. We offer you The student will be guided through an interdisciplinary and clearly defined research project in a young and dynamic environment.
The proposed project will investigate the therapeutic relevance of targeting selected altered metabolic pathways in myeloid leukemias and other hematological cancers by using :
