A postdoctoral position is available in carcinogenesis and chemoprevention laboratory, to study role of mutation in adenomatous polyposis coli gene as a risk for breast carcinogenesis and its prevention by dietary spice curcumin. We are utilizing Min mouse in vitro and in vivo model system to study altered cascade of signal pathways during carcinogenesis and its prevention by curcumin. Cell biological, genetic and molecular biological approaches will be utilized to discover pathways that lead to breast cancer development. Our lab is a part of Surgery Department at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University located in the heart of New York City.
