DNA damage repair in yeast and human model systems                 

Posting expires on 12/31/2019

Research Site:
University of MInnesota - Twin Cities

Type of Research:
Basic Science

Department:
Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics

This opportunity does not have a stipend.

Description:
The Bielinsky laboratory explores cellular responses to replication stress and DNA damage. These pathways are important barriers to cancer development and are evolutionarily highly conserved. We are using budding yeast as well as human non-transformed and cancer cell lines as our experimental model systems. We are employing large-scale genetic screens, proteomics and molecular biology techniques to dissect the function of specific components of the eukaryotic genome integrity network to identify potential targets for anti-cancer therapy.
