  • B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL), malignant counterpart of BM differentiating B cells, represents the most common cancer in childhood and, although less frequent, corresponds to a similar number of cases in adults. New combinations of chemotherapeutic agents, have dramatically improved disease outcome in children, but the overall survival of adults at diagnosis and after relapse remains low. Resistance to treatment in B-ALL partially relies on protective cues provided by BM stromal cells.

    Using state-of-the-art technologies, our research focus on deciphering the interactions between leukemic cells and the different constituents of the bone marrow microenvironment. Our team has a special interest on the cell-non- autonomous cues influencing leukemogenesis and B-ALL progression. Genetic mouse models available in the lab and strong relationships with the clinical hematology department allow us to address both fundamental and translational questions with the goal of identifying new potential therapeutic targets. The post-doc candidate will have in charge the investigation of elements affecting niche homeostasis and having a potential influence on B-ALL development using transgenic mouse models and patient-derived xenografts.

    Rennes is located in Brittany in the west of France. In addition to its Celtic heritage, Rennes is at 1h from St Malo on the Channel, 1b5 from the Mont St Michel, 1b0 from Vannes on the Atlantic Ocean and 1b0 from Paris.

    Located in the medical campus of Rennes University, our group belongs to the academic INSERM U1236 research team. Our lab has a major expertise in the pathophysiology and microenvironment of B-cell lymphoproliferation with a special interest in the crosstalk between tumor cells and their supportive niches. The team works together with the clinicians of the service of clinical hematology in Rennes hospital and has a facilitated access to patient samples.

    As a post-doc, you will have a full access to several facilities available in the lab and within the BIOSIT core facilities (https: // biosit.univ- including confocal microscopes, flow cytometry/cell sorter facility, single cell qPCR and scRNAseq plateform…
