Previous Institution:

I did my PhD in cancer and aging with Maria Blasco in CNIO (Madrid, Spain) and a short postdoc at the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine (Edinburgh, Scotland).

My interests are:

I am modeling recurrent chromosome rearrangements in colorectal cancer using CRISPR, to dissect the specific contribution of coding and non-coding regions to tumor initiation and progression.

OPEN POSITIONS


Postdoc

We are currently seeking highly motivated and independent postdocs to join the Dow lab. We are using cross-species analysis and innovative mouse models to explore the events governing progression and therapeutic response of colorectal cancer. Previous experience with animal models, particularly mice, is advantageous but not essential.

To apply, please send your CV, description of past research and list of referees to: lud2005@med.cornell.edu


Students

Situated in the state-of-the-art Belfer Research Building as part of the Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center at Weill-Cornell Medical College, we are affiliated with the Cell & Developmental Biology (BCMB) Program within the Weill-Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences. Graduate students interested in rotations should contact Luke Dow (lud2005@med.cornell.edu).
