Outcome Research in hematological malignancies can inform the decision-making process for treatment of these malignancies. It involves clinical and population-based studies meant to optimize the benefits of healthcare to the patient and society. This can include testing, developing, and validation methods and tools to predict treatment outcomes; understanding patients’ experiences, preferences, and values for treatment of cancer; and generating evidence to determine which interventions work best for which types of patients and under what circumstances.

 

The Principal Investigator (PI) conducts several grant-funded multi-center clinical studies aimed at developing tools and information to guide choices of therapy in vulnerable (older or with numerous medical problems) patients with hematological malignancies and to better evaluate the usefulness of a treatment approach like hematopoietic cell transplantation. We value a team approach to our work, in which each member contributes and shares in the responsibility for our projects.


The purpose of this internship is to provide training to graduate students who would like to pursue a career in clinical research, medicine, public health, epidemiology, and/or social science, and would benefit from exposure to grant preparation and reporting, and management of a clinical research study.

A highly motivated post-doctoral research fellow is sought to carry out a research project in the lab of Dr. A. McGarry Houghton at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA.

 

About the Lab

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, accounting for ~160,000 lives each year in the US alone.  The Houghton Lab’s current research program focus is to comprehensively study the host immune response to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).  The lab also studies the role of myeloid lineage cells within the lung tumor microenvironment.  Studies in this area are centered upon the mechanisms by which neutrophil lineage cells antagonize lymphocyte functions within the tumor microenvironment.

Responsibilities

The Post-Doctoral Fellow will contribute to the Lab’s research agenda with a focus on the identification of tumor microenvironmental factors that dictate success or failure to immune checkpoint blockade. This project will involve single cell sequencing experiments and subsequent data analysis. The project will also involve the use of novel mouse models of lung cancer that rely on cigarette smoke exposure in mice to generate lung adenocarcinomas with a high mutational spectral burden. The fellow will conduct independent and collaborative research resulting in presentations and publications.

 

The techniques involved will include working with mouse models of lung cancer (Kras/p53, Pten/Lkb1, LLC syngeneic models, etc.) both with and without cigarette smoke exposure and carefully studying the immune response to the tumor using flow cytometry, multiplexed-immunohistochemistry, gene expression analyses (qPCR), protein assessment (ELISA) and others. Experience with single cell sequencing, RNAseq, and whole exome sequencing is preferred. Manipulation of these model systems with immune-based and other oncology drugs are commonplace in the lab. These in vivo studies will be supplemented by in vitro studies involving multicellular culture system, assays of cellular chemotaxis, function and viability and other standard protocols.

The research in the Bernstein lab has primarily focused on developmental aspects of normal and leukemic hematopoiesis with the specific goal of developing novel therapeutic modalities. In these efforts we have identified maturation linked cell surface antigens and have utilized this information for developing methods for targeted therapy of hematologic malignancies and for isolating and characterizing normal and malignant human hematopoietic stem cells. Current studies of normal hematopoiesis are aimed at determining the role of the Notch pathway to direct primitive hematopoietic precursors to commit to a particular maturational pathway or to self-renew. These efforts are currently being extended in studies of CAR T-cell self-renewal and differentiation. Recent studies of leukemia focus on how cells in the marrow microenvironment protect the leukemic stem cells from therapy.

Responsibilities

The Bernstein Lab is recruiting a Research Technician II/III to engage in studies of the role of the Notch pathway in hematopoiesis and in T cell development.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree in biological science and research experience beyond course work are absolutely essential. 
  • Experience with flow cytometry essential and a broad range of standard molecular biology techniques is preferred.
  • Computational skills for single cell analysis would be a plus.
    • Research Technician II - The candidate should have at least two years of full-time, post-bachelor's laboratory experience.

The Geraghty Lab seeks an exceptionally skilled, experienced molecular biologist to join their team. A summary of Dr. Geraghty's research can be found here.

Responsibilities

The Staff Scientist will work in a research laboratory that performs state of the art genotyping for disease association studies.  The laboratory collaborates with local and international labs to carry out anthropological, clinical, and basic disease studies that are aimed at a better understanding and development of data and tools for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of human diseases. 

 

A core goal is to facilitate the use of immune genetic data both as a predictive tool in anticipating clinical outcomes (diagnosis) and as knowledge and information relevant to the biological processes causal of those outcomes (therapeutics.) Precisely such application has long been active in support of hematopoietic cell transplants (HCTs) and plans are to expand and extend use to infectious disease, autoimmunity, and cancer.  This work includes two fronts in expanding the genetic testing capacities of our genotyping systems and developing new analytic capabilities for data application. Novel typing systems focusing on heretofore untested immune response variation are being developed by building on the core systems supporting HLA. For novel analytics, study cohorts have been assembled to apply machine learning/artificial intelligence tools to identify patterns of immune genetic variation predictive of clinical outcomes in HCTs (for replication with and extension with new methods and added data) and for COVID-19 as a model of infectious disease.

Qualifications

A PhD in a biological science or related with an understanding of the fundamentals of molecular genetics is required. Familiarity with the genetics of the immune response would be a significant advantage – in particular with the HLA system. To be successful in this position, one must have the ability to communicate effectively with coworkers, working together in executing tasks that engage multiple complementary activities in parallel. In addition to benchwork, these activities include data analysis and effective interaction with the laboratory’s software and data analysis group. The ability and willingness to take initiative in problem solving and suggestions for workflow improvements will be a key to advancement and associated benefits.
