We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious student to investigate mechanisms of tumor-induced blood coagulation, with a focus on the role of tissue factor and adhesion receptors (e.g., α2β1 integrin) on tumor cells, coagulation and platelet aggregation and their inhibition by snake venom toxins.
The project will involve cloning and expression of adhesion receptors of tumor cells, ELISA-based association and activity testing of the tissue factor:factor VII-complex, protein chemical isolation of snake venom toxins, immunological detection methods (e.g., ELISA, immunoblot), flow cytometry and aggregometry, as well as cell biological techniques, such as adhesion and migration tests, immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy.
