Our recent findings suggest that targeting RIPK2 could be a paradigm-shifting therapeutic strategy for substantially extending cancer patients' lives and delaying painful symptoms caused by metastasis (Nature Communications 2022). The candidate will elucidate the functions and mechanisms of RIPK2 signaling in prostate cancer metastasis and immune evasion using cancer biology or proteomics techniques. The incumbent will conduct research and ensure that all experiments are appropriately conducted following the policies and procedures of Stony Brook University.
