The University of Padua and the Laboratory of Angiogenesis and Cancer Metabolism, Dept. of Biology, University of Padua, lead by Prof. Massimo M. Santoro are seeking candidates for a PhD position to study the role of metabolism in cancer growth and spreading starting in Fall 2023. The lab has recently identified a set of metabolic mechanisms that are crucial for the regulation of tumor vasculature and antioxidant response (Santoro, 2020, Cell Metabolism; Arslanbaeva and Santoro, 2021, Redox Biology, Arslanbaeva et al., 2022;Facchinello et al., 2022, Nature Metabolism; Oberkersch et al., 2022, Developmental Cell). Using advanced genetic and omics approaches as well as advanced molecular and metabolic techniques we want to elucidate how metabolism regulates cancer survival and progression. Our laboratory has acquired strong experience in the field of metabolism, genetic, molecular and cellular biology working with cells and animal models. Mouse animal facility, transcriptomics/translatomic platforms, STED, atomic force, multiphoton, light sheet microscopy equipment s, and metabolic/proteomic core facilities are available in the laboratory and department for these studies. The project will include secondments Please visit these websites for further information about us: www.massimosantorolab.com and https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=massimo+m.+santoro&sort=pubdate.
University of Padua is among the top Italian institutions with over 30 ERC grantees. Our university combines a strong tradition in cell biology with interdisciplinary approaches and represents an idyllic environment for life science research. Padova is an historical university city, located in the North-East of Italy, near Venice, closed to the Mediterranean sea and the Dolomites enabling a healthy work-life balance.
