Bionformatics in Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma Phd Scholarship
Our group is working to decipher the driver mutations and molecular pathways that promote metastasis in cSCC using a multi-Omics (whole genome/transcriptome/methylome) approach. This information will also be used to facilitate the stratification of potential clinically important genes (biomarkers) as predictors of metastatic potential in primary cSCC and identify potential new therapeutic targets. This PhD project will provide the opportunity for a student to work on the integration and analysis of the multi-omics dataset being generated by the group. The student will join a collaborative team of clinicians and molecular and bioinformatics scientists exploring cSCC from the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (located on the University of Wollongong campus), the Sydney Head Neck Cancer Institute and at the National Cancer Centre Singapore.
