Collaborative Research Center (SFB 1074) on “Experimental models and clinical translation in leukemia”
We are currently offering positions for
Ph.D. Students (m/f)
experienced in molecular genetics, mouse models, biochemistry, and/or bioinformatics
The Collaborative Research Center (Sonderforschungsbereich, SFB 1074) was granted, in May 2020, a third and last funding period by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft at Ulm University (Coordinating Principal Investigator: Prof. Dr. Hartmut Döhner, Department of Internal Medicine III, Ulm University). The last funding period will be from 01.07.2020 to 30.06.2024.
SFB 1074 aims at integrating findings from basic science and clinical investigations to improve patient outcome by performing highly focused cancer research on acute and chronic leukemias. Ulm University has a long-standing commitment to cutting-edge basic, translational, and clinical research on hematopoietic malignancies. This is reflected by a large number of research groups focusing on important aspects of leukemia biology, as well as by some of the largest biobanks and most prestigious clinical programs in this area.
Research within the SFB is organized in two project groups, which closely interact with each other to fully exploit the potential of combining excellent basic science with clinical expertise. Projects in Group A use a broad spectrum of physiologically relevant in vitro and in vivo experimental systems to investigate cellular and molecular mechanisms of leukemogenesis. Projects in Group B have a strong translational aspect and aim towards the genetic, epigenetic, and functional characterization of leukemia samples from patients with acute and chronic leukemia and/or human-derived experimental systems.
