MSc/PhD students

We are looking for highly motivated students interested to work on projects involving identification of novel biomarkers and therapeutic vulnerabilities in high fatality pediatric leukemia.

Postdoctoral fellowship

Large-scale pharmacological and genetic screen to study high-risk pediatric leukemia

Research project description

Large-scale pharmacological and genetic screen to study high-risk pediatric leukemia, including MLL-rearranged leukemia, and megakaryoblastic leukemia of childhood. Small molecule and crispr libraries will be used to identify leukemia specific functional dependencies, and ultimately bring forward novel therapeutic targets. The project is highly collaborative, involving researchers from multiple institutions, including IRIC, CHUL, and McGill, and funded through the Oncopole initiative. Characterization of pediatric leukemia samples benefits from outstanding support from the Quebec Leukemia Cell Bank and from the hematology-oncology division of CHU Sainte-Justine.
