The Morgan Lab at the University of Sussex is seeking to appoint a highly talented and motivated Research Fellow to progress a 3-year Children’s Cancer & Leukaemia Group (CCLG) Little Princess Trust (LPT) research project grant targeting aberrant Wnt/b-catenin signalling in paediatric acute myeloid leukaemia (pAML). Specifically, this project will interrogate b-catenin interaction with RNA binding proteins (RBP) and RNA and how this impacts pAML cell growth/survival/chemosensitivity, with the aim of developing targeted patient treatments.

The research focus of the group is centered around understanding the role of Wnt/b-catenin signalling in both normal haematopoiesis and AML.
