  • 21.01.20 - Postdoc Position in Mammary Gland Biology
    Laboratory of Dr. Zuzana Koledova 

    Masaryk University
    Faculty of Medicine
    Kamenice 753/3
    625 00 Brno
    Czech Republic

    A short description of vacancy:
    Research group of Dr. Zuzana Koledova studies processes, which govern mammary epithelial morphogenesis and homeostasis, and deregulation of which can lead to breast cancer. The main focus of the lab is on the role of mammary stromal cells in regulation of epithelial behaviour and the interplay of fibroblast growth factor signalling, cytokines and hormones in mammary gland mo rphogenesis and breast cancer. The approaches include advanced 3D organoid cultures of mouse and human primary tissue, genetic mouse models, state-of-the-art imaging techniques and mathematical modelling. The research group has extensive collaborations within the European Network of Breast Development and Cancer and beyond.

    Recently, using primary mouse mammary organoid co-cultures with fibroblasts, Dr. Koledova’s team has uncovered a novel mechanism, by which mammary fibroblasts mediate mammary epithelial morphogenesis. The candidate will investigate this mechanism more deeply.
