The position is funded through a T32 training grant and therefore eligibility is limited to
green-card holders and citizens of the United States.

The general theme of research is centered on the interaction between cardiac intermediate filaments
(IFs) and mitochondria, in the setting of cardiovascular disease – the largest cause of
hospitalization and death in the U.S.

We recently published that desmin aggregates in the heart may act as amyloid aggregate observed in
Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases:

https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/heart_failure_the_alzheimers_disease_of_th
e_heart

The ideal candidate must be highly organized, proficient in English and interested in pursuing a
career in cardiovascular and muscle disease. A background in IFs biology is preferred and so is
technical competence in cell and molecular biology and protein biochemistry.

The successful candidate will be will be trained in protein biochemistry and proteomics as well as
mitochondrial biology. The project will span from basic research to clinical applications.

Johns Hopkins University is a competitive institution that provides for an exciting research
environment. The CRCIF is part of the Institute of Cardioscience, which along with the medical and

MD

Cancer Research Training Award Fellow Sought for Virtual Tissue Repository Project

Introduction

The Surveillance Research Program (SRP) directs the collection and analysis of cancer surveillance data to answer key questions about cancer. As part of its mission, SRP manages the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program, an integrated, comprehensive, multiple population-based cancer reporting system that collects data on approximately 400,000 cancer cases annually and represents 28% of the US population. Population-based biospecimens are critical to modern cancer research including the development and testing of novel predictive biomarkers to direct therapeutic decision making and prognostic biomarkers for understanding outcome risks, identification of novel cancer subtypes, and testing of molecular-level hypotheses in population subgroups. Leveraging its 18 cancer registries across the United States, the SEER program is initiating a series of activities to assist investigators in locating and accessing biospecimens for research purposes, referred to as the Virtual Tissue Repository (VTR) pilot studies. Planning is also underway to scale the VTR to additional SEER cancer registries (the VTR Program).

Position Description

The Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) fellow will function as an integral member of the VTR working group. He/she will work with staff on projects related to the mission of SRP and the Data Quality, Analysis, and Interpretation Branch (DQAIB), particularly as that mission relates to projects on genomics and biospecimens. Day-to-day activities of this full-time position include, but are not limited to:

  • Organize and collaborate on VTR pilot studies of components of a national network for biospecimen acquisition with NCI, academic investigators, and contractors as well as regular interactions with SEER registry personnel;
  • Manage projects related to VTR pilot studies, website interface development, human subjects research protections, and state and local laboratory and hospital practices;
  • Assist in synthesizing the results from the VTR pilot studies to create a production level implementation plan for developing a large scale virtual biorepository;
  • Participate in planning, development, and execution of other DQAIB projects;
  • Gather, analyze, and synthesize information through literature reviews, surveys, and via poster and oral presentations, drafting and submitting abstracts for meetings, and assisting in writing manuscripts; and
  • Participate in staff meetings and attend lectures or other training opportunities sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.
