Dr. Putluri's lab is applying mass spectrometry technology to study metabolic profiling studies in cancer development and progression. Our lab established a robust research program in bladder cancer research. Particularly, we have characterized metabolic alterations associated with smoking in bladder cancer, health disparity and defined a role xenobiotic metabolism in bladder cancer progression. We use a variety of pre-clinical models including cancer cell lines, Organoid cultures, patient-derived xenografts (PDXs), and genetically engineered mouse models (GEMM). We are seeking highly motivated senior research Associate, who is interested in translational tumor research.

Job Purpose

The project involves studying epigenetic mechanisms using in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo models. The focus of our laboratory is cancer metabolism and tumorigenesis. The research work will involve a combination of metabolomics, genomics, epigenomics, shRNA KD, CRISPR-gene editing approaches, over expression and a variety of model systems including cell line, organoids, mice and PDXs.

Job Duties
  • Collects, compiles and analyzes data.
  • Prepares and conducts laboratory research experiments.
