A Postdoctoral position is available at the Weizmann Institute of Science to investigate the role of exosomes in breast cancer progression and metastasis. We investigate the underlying mechanisms of exopsomes biogenesis and secretion, and characterize their protein and RNA/miRNA contents. We also explore the role of exosomes as biomarkers and their involvement in tumor-microenvironment crosstalk. We employ multidisciplinary experimental approaches using breast cancer patient samples, in vitro cellular models and in vivo animal models.-
