We are seeking a Bioinformatics Analyst who will join the teams of Dr. Scott Armstrong and Dr. Mariella Filbin in the Department of Pediatric Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Our goal is to develop new therapeutic approaches for children with leukemia and brain tumors by overcoming “differentiation blocks” in cancer cells. Specifically, our research focuses on understanding the genetic and epigenetic changes that lock cancer cells in a stem-like state, preventing differentiation into normal cells.
