Study of the molecular mechanism of Endothelial to Mesenchymal Transition during muscle regeneration and crosstalk with the immune system in vivo and in vitro.
A 3 year PhD studentship is available within the Heva Research Group, School of Medicine and Surgery, University of Milano Bicocca, Milan, Italy (https://hevaresearch.unimib.it/), under the supervision of Prof. Silvia Brunelli.
The position is the framework of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN funded project RENOIR (REcreating the ideal Niche: environmental control Of cell Identity in Regenerating and diseased muscles, https://renoir-itn.eu/).
The PhD project (https://renoir-itn.eu/esr1/) focusses on how the inflammatory and vascular components integrate to coordinate muscle regeneration and how the process of Endothelial to Mesenchymal Transition (EndoMT) contributes to fibrosis in pathological conditions, using in vitro and in vivo models.
The student will be enrolled in the Ph.D. Programme in Translational and Molecular Medicine (DIMET), University of Milano Bicocca (www.dimet.org).
