Area with Open Position:​

Cancer biology and metabolism

 

Faculty Member Name:

Dr. Deliang Guo, PhD

Description of Position:

Dr. Guo's laboratory current has 1-2 postdoctoral position opening

His laboratory focuses on tumor biology and metabolism. The long-term goal is to unravel the underlying molecular mechanism of how oncogenic signaling interlinks with metabolism reprogramming in malignancies, and identify the promising therapeutic targets to translate into clinic in collaboration with physicians.

Dr. Guo's laboratory is the first to identify that reprogrammed lipid metabolism manifested by activation of SREBP-1, a ER-bound transcription factor with a central role in lipid synthesis and uptake, is a novel characteristic of malignancies. He further found SREBP-1 is a novel and promising therapeutic target in cancers (please see Guo et al., PNAS 2009, Science Signaling 2009, Cancer Discovery 2011, CNS Onco 2013, Current Pharma Design 2014). Most recently, his group uncovered the underlying link between EGFR signaling, glucose and lipid metabolism. They revealed that EGFR signaling via promoting glucose uptake and N-glycosylation to activate SCAP/SREBP-1 trafficking and lipid synthesis and uptake. The work is published on Cancer Cell on Nov 9th, 2015 (Cheng et al., 2015).

Dr. Guo's laboratory is looking for self-motivated, well-trained recently graduated PhD to join his team to work on the exciting research field-tumor metabolism. There are many promising projects already explored in oncogenenic signaling, glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism and miRNA. Working on these intriguing interlinks and important questions will bring bright outcome both in cancer biology and clinical translation.

 

Qualifications:

The strong candidates are expected to well-traned research background in cancer biology, molecular biology, animal work. Metabolism background and miRNA experience are plus. The salary is experience based.

 

Deadline to Apply:

12/31/2015

 

Application Instructions:

Interested applicants please direct send email to PI by email deliang.guo@osumc.edu​. If selected for on-site interview, all travel cost will be covered.
