Postdoctoral positions are available in the research laboratory of Dr. Robert Hromas, Dean of the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine. His research is varied and covers aspects of cancer biology, DNA repair and drug development and is well funded by CPRIT and NIH grants.
The Hromas laboratory has a number of years of experience in identifying new DNA repair proteins and determining their roles in DNA repair and DNA replication, and whether these new proteins would be good targets for new therapies. He has an interest in microRNAs - their regulation and their potential use in a clinical setting. In addition, the Hromas laboratory has a strong interest in drug development and collaborates with a number of other researchers for the design and manufacturing of these new compounds. The techniques routinely used in the laboratory are: tissue culture, including colony formation assays and MTT assays; overexpression and knock down of proteins of interest; western blotting; immunofluorescence staining and confocal microscopy; flow cytometry; and we are one of the few laboratories to be successful using the DNA fiber and iPOND techniques.
Dr. Hromas has mentored many pre and postdoctoral trainees. There is the opportunity to work on multiple projects, collaborate with laboratories both inside the institution and outside at other institutions, as well as being supported to present at one US scientific meeting per year.
