22. Postdoctoral PositionĀ 

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowship:

Tumor cells must endure diverse intrinsic and extrinsic stressors that perturb proteome homeostasis. By serving as a protein-folding buffer within the cell, the chaperone protein HSP90 supports protein homeostasis and enables tumor cells to survive and rapidly evolve resistance to therapies. For this, HSP90 must bind to diverse proteins and stabilize them within the cytoplasm. However, the specific mechanisms through which HSP90 fosters cancer evolution remain obscure. We will examine these HSP90-dependent mechanisms using multiomic systems approaches and functional genomics methodologies, and subsequently, we will validate the mechanisms we identify in mice.
