Joshi Alumkal, M.D., is a physician-scientist who focuses on making fundamental discoveries about what drives lethal human prostate cancer with the goal of developing novel treatments that will improve patient outcomes.  

The Alumkal laboratory focuses on identifying mechanisms by which prostate cancer progresses to the lethal form of the disease that is resistant to male hormone-lowering therapies. We believe molecular methods can be used to understand this process. Our goal is to apply insights from the lab to clinical trials for patients.

We are currently recruiting a Lab Manager!

The Lab Manager will be responsible for managing laboratory operations, including: regulatory aspects such as IBC and IACUC; equipment maintenance and service contracts; and project management involving sample coordination, shipping, and processing. Ordering supplies, inventorying, and unpacking deliveries are also important responsibilities. This individual may also carry out experiments in the laboratory, including protein and RNA expression and purification from mammalian cells and bacteria, qPCR, Western blotting, tissue culture of mammalian cell lines and transfection, and may assist with mouse experiments.
