Description

We have a position available for a PhD student in the group of “Inflammatory and Cell Death Signaling in Diabetes”, lead by Prof. AK Cardozo at the ULB Center for Diabetes Research (ULB-CDR; http://ucdr.ulb.ac.be). The ULB-CDR is located at the Faculty of Medicine, Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium. The ULB is one of the European leaders in the biomedical research and our department has a highly dynamic research environment with teams dealing with the pathogenesis of type 1 (T1D) and type 2 (T2D) diabetes.

Our research is focused on the understanding of mechanisms leading to inflammation-mediated dysfunction and death of pancreatic β-cells in diabetes. Our strategy is to use genomics, proteomics and detailed signal transduction analysis in both in vitro and in vivo models of the disease. Our ultimate goal is to devise novel ways to prevent β-cell demise in diabetes.
