I am a postdoctoral researcher whose main objective is to discover and characterize promising new regulators of YAP / TAZ oncoproteins in basal breast cancer. For this we have designed a High content siRNA screening and, through genetic and molecular techniques, we successfully performed a low throughput validation of the most interesting candidates.
