The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Human Genetics and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center has an exciting opportunity for a Post-Doctoral Associate in the Figueroa lab. This position will investigate the molecular mechanisms of epigenetic regulation of cancer, with particular focus on normal and malignant hematopoiesis. The laboratory focuses on studying the contribution of DNA methylation and chromatin changes to the development of acute leukemias. We have recently demonstrated that leukemias have very specific DNA methylation patterns that correlate with molecular and clinical features (Cancer Cell, 2010 Jan 19;17(1):13-27, PLoS Genetics 2012 Jun;8(6)), we have established a mechanistic link between known mutations in AML and the establishment of aberrant hypermethylation profiles (Cancer Cell. 2010 Dec 14;18(6):553-67, Cell Reports 2014, 9(5), 1841-1855) and we have demonstrated that epigenetic profiles can be used for phenotypic predictions in patients (JCI 2015; 125(5):1857-72).
