Instructor (Chang Lab)


The Chang Lab specializes on identifying activities selectively controlled by a given RAS protein. Research is focused on signal transduction medicated by RAS GTPases and their effect on controlling cell growth and tumor formation. The long-term goal of the laboratory is to translate laboratory findings into therapeutic strategies to treat RAS-driven cancers. The Chang lab in the Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine is seeking an Instructor to be part of a team that is using a combination of genetic and molecular approaches to study growth regulation in cancer.
