PhD Student – Intravital Microscopy of Murine Glioma

The position in the research group of the Neurosurgery is to be filled as soon as possible and is initially limited for a period of 3 years. The experimental research laboratory is a newly established group, headed by Dr. Thomas Broggini, supporting careers in translational cancer research. The focus of our laboratory is to explore clinical phenotypes in rodents in a whole body assessment. Through our affiliation with the clinic, we have access to clinical specimens and are able to study them ex-vivo (e.g. life cultures, genetic, histological and immunhistological stainings).

Project Description

The planned PhD project is part of the discovery and development initiative founded by the Frankfurt Cancer Institute and will be performed in close collaboration with the Neurosurgens. The goal is to identify whole brain changes in murine glioma models. In this context the translation into the clinic with a focus on the specific needs of patients receiving anti-cancer therapy is of special interest.
