Early Stage Researcher

ITN T-OP Training Network for Optimizing Adoptive T cell Therapy of Cancer, funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie program, H2020 with Grant Agreement no 955575.

CALL FOR POSITON AS EARLY STAGE RESEARCHERS, IN COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

Who we are

T-OP – Training Network for Optimizing Adoptive T cell Therapy of Cancer is an Initial Training Network funded by the European Union. It started on March 1st 2021 has a duration of four years. The network comprises 17 partners, from academy, industry and public authority, located in seven different countries.

Scientific scope

T-OP aims at improving the efficacy and production of cell therapies. It will enable future experts to develop new therapeutic solutions providing them with a program of excellence.

Over the last years, immunotherapy – using a patient’s own immune system to fight tumours – has emerged as an important complement to standard treatments. The clinical implementation of immunotherapeutics has established T cells as efficient anti-cancer weapons if targeted by specific drugs. Their therapeutic utilization has recently come to a breakthrough: adoptive T cell therapy (ACT), collecting and transforming the patient’s own T cells to treat cancer.

The generation of such ACT products is a complex but ill-defined process with limited harmonization across production and clinical studies, even for the same indication. Cytokines are a key element of these products as they are responsible for the growth and differentiation of T-cells.

There is however a limited understanding as to which cytokines might lead to the best outcome on any of these steps. T-OP targets a pioneering research question: how do cytokines influence the therapeutic outcome of ACT products? T-OP brings together interdisciplinary and cross-sectorial teams spanning large and small-sized companies as well as experts in different aspects of cell therapy, immunology, protein engineering and bioinformatics.

One open position in Copenhagen, Denmark:

  • Project 2 (ESR2): Functional stimulation of T cells using artificial antigen scaffolds for T cell expansion. In Denmark, Copenhagen, at Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, supervised by Sine Reker Hadrup
