Research Position in Translational Neuro-Oncology Lab, Nationawide Children’s Hospital, Columbus, OH

Opportunity expires March 31, 2020

The Rajappa Lab is accepting applications for a Research Position from backgrounds in Neuroscience, Tumor Immunology, or Cancer Biology. Our team is part of the Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM) at the Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, which is at the forefront of using genomic sequencing in the clinical setting to predict best health outcomes for patients and is one of the driving forces shaping precision medicine. Our passion and vision is to rapidly translate research discoveries into lasting treatment options for pediatric patients afflicted with Central Nervous System (CNS) tumors. Specifically, our laboratory is studying the mehcanisms that potentiate low to high grade glioma progression. We use transgenic brain tumor mouse models that recapitulate low to high grade glioma progression and correlate our findings with peripheral blood and tumor specimens from patients with CNS tumors. These models also serve as a platform to explore the contribution of the tumor microenvironment and myeloid cells in low grade glioma progression and also test novel therapeutic agents aimed at impairing malignant transformation. Furthermore, modulating myeloid-derived cell population recruitment using JAK 1/2 Inhibitors prior to malignant tumor progression has shown translational promise.

Regenerative Medicine Summer Internship with SENS Research Foundation

The SRF Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer, atherosclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Summer Scholar is responsible for his or her own research project in such areas as genetic engineering and stem cell research. The Program emphasizes both laboratory and communication skills training to develop well-rounded future scientists, healthcare professionals, and policy makers. 

The Summer Scholars Program sets itself apart from many other internship programs with its focus on the development of scientific communication skills in addition to enhancing laboratory and critical thinking skills. Throughout the summer, students participating in the program are guided through intensive writing assignments that simulate documents scientists are often asked to produce, such as grant proposals, abstracts, and PPT presentations. The communication training culminates in a student symposium after the internship, where Summer Scholars present the results of their work. 

  • Program Learning Objectives include:
    • Plan and execute an independent research project.
    • Learn new technical skills.
    • Learn how to explain scientific concepts to a non-scientific audience.
    • Learn how to write a simple grant proposal.
    • Present results at a student symposium.
