Are you looking to make a significant difference by contributing to the search for a cure for pediatric cancer? If so, this might be a right role for you where you will be working in an internationally recognized consortium co-led by Lilly and the University of Heidelberg/DKFZ to identify promising drugs for children with cancer. Oncology Translational Research at Eli Lilly and Company is committed to developing innovative, game-changing therapies for the treatment of pediatric cancer.
We are seeking an ambitious post-doctoral scientist with exceptional communication skills to contribute to high visibility translational research projects. Your work will contribute to the development of a world-class preclinical pediatric testing platform. In this role, you will:
Support the ITCC-P4 Pediatric Preclinical Proof-of Concept Platform (https://www.itccp4.eu), an IMI2 project (https://www.imi.europa.eu/about-imi) funded by the EU and European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Association.
Have significant interaction with the ITCC-P4 consortium, with an emphasis on supporting work packages involved with drug target prioritization/actionability (WP2), model development and characterization (WP3), and drug testing (WP5) and biomarker discovery.
Advance the molecular mechanism of action for novel compounds in clinical development; ultimately inform future clinical trials and patient selection strategies by understanding the sensitivity and resistance to small molecule inhibitors across a panel of well-characterized pediatric patient derived xenograft models and pediatric organoids.
Work closely with consortium colleagues across the EU as well as travel to EU as needed.
Identify areas of key need across clinical development and champion creative solutions to address those needs. Maintain external awareness and learning to benefit the organization.
Present findings at international conferences and publish in high quality peer-reviewed journals.
