Predoctoral Researcher for the Kidney Progenitor Cells Project
We usually respond within
IDIBELL is looking for a Predoctoral Researcher for the Kidney Progenitor Cells Project.
About the research group
The Nephrology and Renal Transplantation Group's interests span a broad field, ranging from immunology, renal replacement therapy, transplantation, chronic kidney disease, including diabetic nephropathy, and regenerative medicine. Our research is primarily translational, collaborative and aimed at improving the care and health of patients with kidney disease. In the area of Regenerative Medicine, our vision is to develop new therapies and treatments for acute and chronic kidney disease by controlling inflammation and activating endogenous regenerative mechanisms or by using renal progenitor cells.
About the role
The mechanisms of kidney repair are critical to minimize the long-term impact of kidney damage. Our group is working in deciphering the role of kidney progenitor cells in repair and damage and studying the induction of cellular senescence as key player in fibrosis development after kidney transplantation. We also aim to enhance the reparative role of progenitor cells, which is diminished with age.These projects are conducted in collaboration with EU outstanding investigators. The student will work trying to ascertain whether senescence is limiting the repair capacity of progenitor cells.
