Preceptor


Specialty:  

Breast Cancer Biology

Location:  

University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Prerequisites:   

Must have completed one year of college

Number of Openings:  1-2

Objective:     

With the focus on the unique biological features of ErbB3 receptor in ErbB2-mediated breast cancer formation and progression, we hope to identify novel therapeutic agents for breast cancer patients with ErbB2-overexpressing tumors.

Description:  

The student will gain basic knowledge of ErbB receptor signaling transduction pathways, learn cell culture techniques, cell proliferation assays, western blot analysis of protein expression and activation, evaluate therapeutic agents-induced apoptosis with ELISA, and explore the synergistic inhibitory effects of drug combinations on breast cancer cells.
