The Hurtz lab is looking for two postdoctoral researchers to take on exciting and cutting-edge research on acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at Loma Linda University.
ALL is the most common form of cancer in children and research in the Hurtz lab is focused on understanding the development of and the mechanisms through which this disease manifests to identify treatment targets.
