Become a member of a vibrant research team under the direct supervision of Principal Investigator Gordon Mills, MD, PhD in the OHSU Department of Cell, Developmental and Cancer Biology. Participate in an ongoing broad research program concerning the use of an established series of preclinical models of breast cancer.

They are also tools for preclinical validation of existing drugs to identify mechanisms of resistance and biomarkers of response. The team will test several immunotherapeutics both alone and in combination with targeted therapy in breast cancer models. This innovative model system provides a unique opportunity to explore targeted therapies and immunotherapies as well as their combinations to accelerate new therapies to the patient. Responsibilities include:
Designing and performing laboratory experiments
Generally maintaining laboratory and research space, laboratory notebooks and logs, etc.
Participating in lab meetings, making contributions and submitting research for publication, submitting applications for research funding, presenting research at seminars, poster sessions and conferences
