Joaquin Arribas's group seeks for excellent and highly motivated PhD students to join the lab.

The group focuses on cancer biology research with a truly translational approach.

We have generated a comprehensive platform of patient-derived experimental models from breast and pancreatic cancer. More recently, the group has implemented Humanized PDX models (Hu-PDXs) as a successful tool to characterize anti-tumor immune therapies.

Our research lines center on Translational research against HER2-positive tumors including the characterization of mechanisms of resistance to current therapies, the development of novel therapies and the preclinical characterization of T cell-based therapies against HER2 positive tumors. The Characterization of the role of cellular senescence in breast cancer progression and treatment, and the Evaluation of novel anti-cancer therapies in our panel of breast and pancreatic cancer patient-derived models.

Candidates must have an excellent academic record, minimum grade point average 2.5/4, and be eligible for MECD, ISCIII, AGAUR or similar funded fellowships. Applicants with a Masters Degree and previous research experience will be favorably considered.
