There are multiple research positions open in the laboratory of Deliang Guo, PhD, Director of the Center of Cancer Metabolism at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, USA. His laboratory focuses on cancer metabolism, signal transduction, autophagy and miRNA across multiple cancer types, including brain tumors, lung cancer, liver cancer, sarcoma, pancreatic cancer etc. His research also encompasses topics in immune-metabolism, including collaborations with world-leading researchers in immuno-oncology. The long-term goal of this research is to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms of how oncogenic signaling regulates metabolic reprogramming to promote tumor growth, and to identify the key molecular targets to treat malignancies. His lab is dedicated to translational research, assessing molecular alterations in cancer patient tissues obtained directly from patient bedside at the benchtop, with the goal of bringing clinical treatments back to bedside again.
Dr. Guo’s research is currently supported by 4 NIH R01s, American Cancer Society and OSUCCC funds.
