Description of the workplace
The Cell Reprogramming in Hematopoiesis and Immunity group studies how hematopoietic cell fate is specified, maintained, and eventually modified or reversed. Inspired from the fields of stem cell biology, immunology, and cancer we use an interdisciplinary approach to mechanistically understand hematopoietic and immune cell identities and translate our findings into novel gene and cell therapies. Our group is now recruiting a full-time laboratory assistant that will work on cancer cell reprogramming during one year. The group focuses on cell reprogramming, hematopoiesis, and the development of cell and gene immunotherapeutic strategies. You can read more about our research here.
