University of British Columbia, Department of Dermatology and Skin Science is seeking Postdoctoral Fellow and PhD students in the laboratory of Dr. Gang Li, to study the molecular mechanisms of melanoma pathogenesis and to design novel strategies for melanoma treatment. The current research projects focus on: 1) Biological functions of ING tumor suppressors including UV stress response, PCNA-monoubiquitination and S phase recovery, cell cycle regulation, apoptosis and DNA repair; 2) Signalling pathways of tumor cell migration, invasion, angiogenesis; 3) identification of novel prognostic markers and therapeutic targets. Interested candidates are invited to check the recent publications from Dr. Li's laboratory (Oncogene 24:1111-1116, 2005; J. Clin. Oncol. 23:1473-1482, 2005; Cancer Res. 66:1906-1911, 2006; J. Biol.
