Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
Location: Los Angeles, California
Internal Number: HRC1402203
Join Dr. Athanasia Panopoulos and her research group as a Postdoctoral Scientist in the Cedars-Sinai Regenerative Medicine Institute!
The Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute brings together research faculty and clinicians to provide a true "bench to bedside" organization. Regenerative medicine is a new and developing field that aims to restore function in diseased or aged tissues through either revitalizing existing cells or transplanting new ones. At the Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute, researchers are turning stem cells into therapies for treating a multitude of prevalent diseases and conditions.
The Panopoulos Laboratory at the Cedars-Sinai Regenerative Medicine Institute is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to join our new, dynamic research group. The laboratory studies fundamental and clinically relevant research questions that are at the intersection of the fields of stem cell biology, blood cell development, and cancer.
Are you ready to be a part of breakthrough research?
The long-term research goals of the Panopoulos Laboratory are to harness the power of stem cells to provide innovative and clinically relevant advances in targeted cancer therapeutics and regenerative medicine. Our work focuses on utilizing human somatic cell reprogramming to identify and target novel embryonic mechanisms that are exploited in cancer, and as an avenue to discover fundamental aspects of normal and aberrant hematopoietic development.

Providing healthcare for more than 100 years, Cedars-Sinai has evolved into one of the most dynamic and highly renowned medical centers in the world. Along with caring for patients, Cedars-Sinai is a hub for biomedical research and a training center for future physicians and other healthcare professionals. This attracts exceptional talent to Cedars-Sinai, including world-renowned physician-scientists who seek a place where they can both conduct research and see patients--the ideal formula for discovery and its translation into cures. Our patients benefit from access to doctors at the top of their fields, and our researchers have an ideal community in which to study the impact of healthcare challenges, and reflect that knowledge in their research. The greater Los Angeles area in which Cedars-Sinai resides possesses unparalleled cultural and ethnic diversity which offers outstanding oppor...tunities for translational and clinical research and a dynamic environment for medical education.Although community based, Cedars-Sinai is a major teaching hospital affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Cedars-Sinai has highly competitive graduate medical education programs in more than 50 specialty and subspecialty areas, a graduate program in biomedical sciences and translational medicine, a clinical scholars program directed towards junior physicians with aspirations to become clinical scientists, and post graduate training opportunities.There are more than 250 full-time faculty members at Cedars-Sinai. The voluntary medical staff, comprised of more than 2,200 specialty board-certified or board-qualified physicians, represent all of the specialties and subspecialties and collaborate with full-time medical staff in the teaching responsibilities of the graduate medical education programs.
