Postdoctoral researcher, single-cell spatial multi-omics

Postdoctoral fellowship in single-cell spatial multiomics in SPACE – EU project

The overall goal is to discover how the tumor cells evade the immune system in ovarian cancer, with prospects of leading to major scientific breakthroughs and successful translation of the findings into clinical trials. In the EU funded project SPACE, we aim to integrate genomic profiles (WES, shallow WGS, ctDNA, RNAseq), and single-cell spatial proteomic and transcriptomic data and associate the findings to clinical data using machine learning.
