New vacancy for an animal technician at KU Leuven with the TRACE platform

TRACE, a multidisciplinary project focused on the development of Patient-Derived Xenograft (PDX) models, is set up within the department of Oncology at the KU Leuven and it is part of the Leuvens Kankerinstitute (LKI, uzleuven-kuleuven.be). The platform was created in 2012 aiming to narrow the gap between preclinical and clinical research by developing a more reliable and predictive in vivo model for different tumour types. The established PDXs have the potential to be a representative oncology model for testing innovative treatment therapies, investigating new and existing pathways and define biomarkers.

TRACE is seeking a highly motivated animal technician to join the group and contribute to their ongoing efforts in the establishment/maintenance of PDXs of various tumours and the evaluation of new anti-cancer drugs. The position is funded in the frame of the prestigious EU Horizon 2020 project EDIReX.
