The Theodorescu Lab at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is responsible for scientific interactions and work in the area of translational cancer research.

We employ many different in vitro and in vivo approaches and seek individuals with a strong background in immunology, molecular biology, and biochemistry. Our lab has recently published in a number of high impact journals including Nature, Science, and JNCI and we hope the successful candidate will help us continue making solid contributions to cancer therapeutics.
