About the role

We are looking to recruit a Research Associate to support research funded by Cancer Research Horizons (CRH) to deliver on key milestones set out by a Leicester-CRH Research Contract. The Research Associate will take a lead in securing fresh tumour samples, and deriving these into patient derived explants, which they will treat with CRH-anticancer drugs and conduct endpoint analysis. The project sits at the cutting edge of ex-vivo cancer modelling, and the post holder will contribute to the application and development of novel methodologies of explant endpoint analysis to evaluate biomarkers for commercially sensitive anti-cancer drugs.
