You will be embedded in the new interdisciplinary Department of Medical BioSciences,
which includes 180 scientists in the fields of Cell Biology, Tumor Immunology, Biochemistry, Physiology, and Bioinformatics. The department develops the teaching of medical, biomedical and natural science students, and offers MSc programmes and PhD programs through the Graduate School. The department maintains a high-profile international research programme, and is strongly interdisciplinary and collaborative across research disciplines.
The Friedl team together with the Research Technology Centers Microscopical Imaging (MIC) and the Preclinical Animal Imaging Centre (PRIME) have a long-standing experience in the field of advanced microscopy of cancer cell invasion and metastasis in 3D tissue culture and in live mice. They focus on multi-scale analysis of cell-matrix interactions during single-cell and collective cell migration, proteolytic tissue remodeling during invasion and physical and molecular mechanisms tissue guidance of cell invasion, and how the immune system responds to metastatic tumor cells.
Our work was published in high-profile journals (Nat Cell Biol, Nat BioMed Engineering, Nat Rev Cancer, Nat Rev Materials, J Exp Med, Nat Commun). Particularly defined in vivo models for intravital multiphoton microscopy of metastasis and the immune response against early metastases which will be investigated in this project.
The group of Peter Friedl has long-lasting expertise in the training of PhD, MD and MSc students participating as supervisors and tutors in departmental and inter-departmental courses including inter-university programs.Radboudumc
