The successful applicant will be part of a large multidisciplinary research team of biomedical engineers, bioscientists, clinicians and industrial partners (BD Research Centre Ireland) who are focused on the architectural characterisation of tissue. The successful applicant will have specific responsibilities and will be a senior member of a core team that is funded by Enterprise Ireland.
The overall objective of this research project is focused on understanding how local tissue microenvironments can contribute to cell behaviour within colonic tumours. The specific aims of this research role are to contribute to the development of a tissue-preparation technology-platform, suitable for multiparameter analysis, which can retain architectural information of tissue at near cellular level. This tissue preparation platform will be integrated for downstream multiparameter analysis using BD Biosciences single cell analysis platforms.
