  • The primary mission of Translational Oncology’s research is to discover new targets and identify and characterize first- and best-in-class clinical candidates. We help guide clinical development of these drugs through a deep understanding of their unique mechanisms of action, define patient populations that are most likely to respond and biomarkers predictive of this response.
  • In Maddalo laboratory, we are interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying therapy resistance and exploring rational drug combinations and biomarker assessment to prevent and/or delay adaptive and intrinsic resistance by leveraging CRISPR-mediated gene editing techniques and animal models of cancer.

Program Highlights

  • Intensive 12-weeks, full time (40 hours per week) paid internship.
  • Program start dates are in May/June 2024.
  • A stipend, based on location, will be provided to help alleviate costs associated with the internship.
  • Ownership of challenging and impactful business-critical projects.
  • Work with some of the most talented people in the biotechnology industry.


  • Must be pursuing PhD in cell biology, cancer biology, immuno-oncology, or related fields.
  • Must be attending an accredited institution.
  • Required skills:
  • Hands-on research experience in cell biology/cancer biology/biochemistry.
  • Familiar with cancer signaling pathways and mouse models of cancer.
  • Experience in mammalian cell culture, molecular and cell biology techniques.
  • Other Preferred Qualifications:
  • Excellent communication, collaboration, and interpersonal skills.
  • Complements our culture and the standards that guide our daily behavior & decisions: Integrity, Courage, and Passion.
  • Experience with CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing, flow cytometry is preferred, but not required.
  • Ability to work independently in a collaborative environment.
