The Cancer Heterogeneity and Hierarchies Group led by Dr Veronica Rodilla, is looking for a Phd student.

We are a newly-created group passionate for cellular hierarchies and cancer heterogeneity. Our laboratory studies the key signals governing stem cell and cell fate specification during malignant progression and the mechanisms by which different signaling pathways controls cell plasticity in both normal and pathological contexts. Concretely, we combine the use of murine transgenic models, human Patient-derived xenografts and 3D-organotypic cultures to unravel cellular hierarchies within tumors for better understanding cancer heterogeneity.

Our ultimate mission is contributing to improve the treatment of choice of cancer patients by searching for novel therapeutic strategies.
