CALL FOR ONE POSITION AS EARLY STAGE RESEARCHER IN HERLEV, DENMARK

Offer description

T-OP Training Network for Optimizing Adoptive T cell Therapy in Cancer is an Initial Training Network funded by the European Union. It started on March 1, 2021 and has a duration of four years. The network comprises 17 partners, from academia, industry, and public authority, located in seven different countries.

T-OP aims at improving the efficacy and production of cell therapies. It will ensure the training of future experts to develop new therapeutic solutions, providing them with a program of excellence.

Over the last years, cancer immunotherapy – using a patient’s own immune system to fight tumors – has emerged as an important complement to standard treatments. In particular, adoptive T cell therapy (ACT) is a promising form of immunotherapy of cancer, consisting of the collection, transformation, and re-infusion of the patient’s own T cells to fight the cancer.

The generation of such ACT products is a complex but ill-defined process with limited harmonization across production and clinical studies, even for the same indication. Cytokines are a key element of in the production of these products, as they are responsible for the growth and differentiation of T-cells.

There is however a limited understanding as to which cytokines might lead to the best outcome at any of these steps. T-OP targets a pioneering research question: how do cytokines influence the therapeutic outcome of ACT products? T-OP brings together interdisciplinary and cross-sectorial teams spanning large and small-sized companies as well as experts in different aspects of cell therapy, immunology, protein engineering, and bioinformatics.

One open position in Herlev, Denmark
: Project 6 (ESR6): Therapeutic potential of MerTK signalling in T cells for cancer therapy. We recently characterized MerTK as a co-stimulatory molecule on CD8 T cells. However, MerTK is expressed by cancer cells as well as innate cells in the tumor micro-environment, which implies that numerous cell types – anti- as well as pro-tumor - may compete for the same MerTK ligand https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31664482/. The project aims at clarifying the role of MerTK in T and NK cells for adoptive transfer, and also scrutinize the role of MerTK expression by cells in the tumor microenvironment.
